Carnegie Mellon University students in Doherty Hall were evacuated on Wednesday night when what appeared to be smoke was seen in the building.

City firefighters who were called at 8:43 p.m. to the classrooms off Frew Street found there was no fire, said Jerry Hirschfeld, a deputy city fire chief. Instead, they found that the exhaust system began taking in sawdust that flowed throughout the building.
