SPOKANE, Wash. -- Longfellow Elementary was briefly evacuated Wednesday morning after reports of smoke in the library.

Fire crews arrived on scene at the 800 block of East Providence.  All students were safely evacuated and had all been accounted for during firefighters' investigation.

Investigators said smoke in the area was sucked into vents, triggering a smoke alarm in the building.
