Lincoln Fire & Rescue says students and staffers evacuated Saratoga Elementary a little before 8:30 a.m. after smoke was noticed in an area near the school gym. Firefighters later contained the fire to a mechanical room.

The students were able to get their coats before going out into the subfreezing weather and were moved to a nearby church within 15 minutes.
