There were contractors working on the roof installing a furnace. The furnace was just started for the first time, and firefighters initially suspect that the source of the haze might have been normal oil burning off the new furnace.

Extra fire units were returned by 10:20 a.m.
Fire command reported no problem at Prospect High School, and identified the source of the haze as oil burning off a heat exchanger that was started for the first time.
