LAFITTE- Students were evacuated from two Jefferson Parish schools Wednesday after administrators said the campuses received threats.

Students were permitted to return late Wednesday morning to Marrero Academy for Advanced Studies in Marrero and Fisher Middle-High School in Lafitte.

Authorities say no threatening devices were found at the schools.

Sherriff's spokesman Col. John Fortunato says phone threats to burn down the schools were received early Wednesday.

Investigators were trying to determine who made the threats.
