Parker High evacuated for short time for false fire alarm
JANESVILLE – A fire alarm sent about 1,700 students and teachers outdoors for a short time at Parker High School.
The alarm went off shortly before 10 a.m. Thursday, but there was no fire or smoke and no danger, said district spokesman Brett Berg.
A sensor probably “tripped” for unknown reasons, Berg said.
The fire department is looking into what might have caused the alarm to go off, Berg said.
“No emergency. Everybody is safe. The evacuation plan worked as it should have,” Berg said.
