BATON ROUGE - Firefighters said an electrical problem caused smoke at Shenandoah Elementary Wednesday morning, which led to an evacuation of the school.

A St. George Fire Department spokesperson said just after 9 a.m. the school reported smoke had appeared in one of their buildings. When firefighters arrived they said they found a ceiling tile smoldering in one of the classrooms, and quickly extinguished it.

Firefighters said the students and staff were evacuated as a precaution, and there were no injuries.

School maintenance fixed the problem and students were able to go back inside just after 10 a.m.
