A smoke alarm prompted a quick student evacuation at the Sparkman 9th grade building in Madison county.

Around 9:00 a.m. Thursday morning, an air conditioner fan overheated and set the smoke alarm off, according to a district spokesman.

Harvest fire crews responded before the all clear was given.

Students returned back to class within 30 minutes.
