WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -

Officials with the Charleston County School District say school dismissal at West Ashley Middle School will proceed as normal following a propane leak Wednesday afternoon. 

CCSD officials say the Charleston Fire Department has given the school clearance to resume normal operations after crews found the source of the propane leak which was behind the school cafeteria, and is being mitigated. 

Earlier in the day, CFD officials advised the school to have students "shelter in place" inside their classrooms as a precautionary measure. 

District security and emergency management are on the scene to support staff and authorities.

Parents have been notified by ParentLink, district officials say.
