NEW HARTFORD, N.Y.- A malfunctioning air conditioning unit drew a fire department response to Bradley Elementary School in New Hartford Thursday night.

Crews from the New Hartford Fire Department were called to the school around 9:00pm.

Assistant New Hartford Fire Chief James Monahan tells NewsChannel 2: “Upon arrival we encountered some smoke conditions on the second floor, where we upgraded our alarm to a fire for investigation, and at that time we found that there's a malfunctioning HVAC unit on the second floor”.

It appears to have been a Freon leak.

There was no damage to the building and Superintendent Bob Nole says that school will be open Friday as usual.

No injuries were reported.
