Smoke from a fan motor filled the Dublin Middle School auditorium with smoke early this morning, but the incident didn’t impact the school day.
Dublin Fire Department Deputy Chief Jeff Saunders said school resource officer Deputy Perry Hodge found light smoke in the auditorium when he arrived at the school around 4:30 a.m.
Firefighters and school maintenance personnel responded to the scene and discovered the smoke was coming from a fan motor in the ventilation system. The fire department used fans to clear smoke from the building and cleared the scene at 6 a.m.
Saunders said the department had just cleared a fire alarm activation call at FedEx in Pulaski County Corporate Center on Pepperell Way around 4 a.m. when the DMS call was received. That call was dispatched around 3 a.m.
