A fire scare at the Shreveport City Jail caused officials to move inmates as a precaution Wednesday morning.

Police say around 2:30 a.m. inmates were quickly cuffed and moved to another part of the building after smoke was found inside the jail. Officers called the Shreveport Fire Department.

Firefighters say after a search, they found smoke coming from a fan in the heat vent but no fire.

Maintenance was called in to fix the fan.
