Burnley-Moran Elementary School (pictured) was evacuated Wednesday morning due to a light haze found in the gymnasium. There was no active fire. Charlottesville Fire Batallion Chief Rich Jones says there was a problem with a freon line from an air compressor. Jones says students initially were evacuated to school buses and then moved to part of the building that was away from the incident. The Burnley-Moran students returned to the building to resume the school day.
