CAROLINE, VA (WWBT) - The Caroline Sheriff's Office says there is no threat at Caroline High School after a student set off fireworks in a hallway.

"Please do not be alarmed as there is no active threat," the sheriff's office wrote on Facebook. No one was injured in this incident.

According to the sheriff's office, this caused the campus to go on lockdown, which has since been lifted.

"The administrative staff has initiated communications to parents, notifying them that students are safe and that the campus has resumed normal operations," said the sheriff's office.

The school is conducting an on-going investigation.

The high school is at 19155 Rogers Clark Blvd.
