Smoke Keeps Kids Out Of Class

Smoke filled part of Southside High School in Beaufort County this morning, forcing students outside for more than an hour as authorities investigated.

The school system says a nearby traffic accident cut off power to the school, and when emergency power came on part of the school filled up with smoke.

By 10:40 am crews had cleared the smoke from the school and the fire marshal said it was okay for the children to return to class.
