An elevator control room at Mineta San Jose International Airport was evacuated Wednesday morning after a light amount of smoke set off a fire alarm, a dispatcher said.

Police responded to an alarm at the airport at about 10:55 a.m. and evacuated the area, but arriving firefighters canceled the evacuation, dispatcher Tracy Deitschman said.

No injuries were reported and the source of the smoke is still under investigation.

Firefighters had left the scene by 11:20 a.m., a dispatcher said.

An airport spokesman was not immediately available for comment.
