HERNANDO, MS (WMC) -

Hernando Middle School officials called the fire department after smelling smoke in a teacher work room.

Firefighters said a faulty refrigerator in the teacher workroom was smoking.

According to DeSoto County Schools, administrators sent students to the football field as they got to school out of an abundance of caution.

The fire department said the students were safe to enter the building and students returned to class at 8 a.m.
