 IN BRIEF: The Crossroads Carmike movie theater in Conyers was evacuated around 2:30 p.m. Thursday after smoke was spotted. Rockdale firefighters reportedly found the source of the smoke near theater nine, one of the larger theaters, from a three-phase transformer with an oil leak and damaged wires.

RCFD spokesperson Sharon Webb said, "Rockdale County Fire and Rescue contained the fire to the room and extinguished. Melted wires and burnt oil from the transformer was the extent of damage."

Movie-goers were promised a refund for their tickets. No injuries were reported. Check back for more information.
