Students Escape Smoky South Jersey Catholic School

Police helped evacuate children from their South Jersey Catholic school Tuesday morning after a small fire that sent smoke into the school.

Gloucester Township police and firefighters responded shortly before 7:45 a.m. to Our Lady of Hope School off Little Gloucester Road after light smoke was seen in the building.

All the children were moved to the nearby church without anyone being hurt, said police.

Photos on the Gloucester Township Police Department Twitter feed showed firefighters tearing out some window panels in an attempt to find the root of the smoke.

No word on when kids will be allowed to return to class.
