(WUSA) -- Occoquan Elementary School were evacuated after the report of a roof fire on Wednesday afternoon. Students were safely moved to trailers.

School officials later determined that a construction crew was working on flashing the roof, which caused smoke to enter the building. It set off an alarm and prompted officials to evacuate the school.

Officials now say there was no fire.

Students and staff have safely returned to the school.
