There was bit of a scare Monday at the Astrodome when smoke was spotted coming from the stadium.

Someone called the fire department after seeing smoke rising in the area. Firefighters had a hard time finding where it was coming from.

Eventually, they determined the smoke came from a belt on a piece of equipment and the structure itself was not in any danger.

The Astrodome's fate remains in limbo after voters rejected a plan to save the building.
