IN BRIEF: Pine Street Elementary was briefly evacuated Tuesday morning after an air conditioning unit on the back of the cafeteria began smoking, according to RCPS spokesperson Cindy Ball. Students were brought back into the school around 9:40 a.m.
"It put a little bit of smoke in the cafeteria. They have to check everything out to make sure," said Ball.
The air conditioning unit's motor overheated, said Rockdale County Fire Department Deputy Chief Mike Lee.
