Huntington fire crews were called to a smoke investigation at Meadows elementary Thursday night.

It happened around 10:30 p.m. in Huntington.

Firefighters say drivers passing by the school saw what appeared to be a large amount of smoke coming from the building.

When they arrived it turned out to be excess steam coming from a boiler leak in the school.

Maintenance personnel were called out to fix the problem.

A security guard says at least one of the four boilers had to be turned off and it may be cold for students in the morning.

No injuries were reported.
