The fire alarm sounded without warning at around 1:30 p.m. March 8.

A smoke head went off triggering the alarm. The smoke head was upstairs in the northwest side of the building right outside of the journalism lab.

The fire department came in to reset the smoke head.

Head custodian Jay Nikolish explained that cologne or dust could have set the fire head off. Nikolish sprayed pressurized air on the head to make sure it was completely clear.
