UNC students were concerned after a thick haze of smoke covered campus and several dorms were evacuated Thursday afternoon.

Orange County Dispatch told ABC11 there was no fire at UNC, and that the smoke was most likely from a controlled burn near Jordan Lake.

The UNC Department of Public Safety said the fire alarms were being tested, and it was just a coincidence that the fire drills happened as smoke rolled onto campus.
