ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Heavy smoke in the area of the CNN Center prompted a brief evacuation early Thursday morning.

Firefighters got the call at about 3:30 a.m. They entered the building but could not locate a fire. About 40 minutes later, authorities gave the all-clear, and employees were allowed back into the building.

Janet Ward, a spokeswoman for Atlanta Fire & Rescue, later said that firefighters never found the source of the fire. CNN employees said the fire apparently did not originate in their building.
