Butler Fire Alarm

Written by

A screeching fire alarm went off in Butler just moments ago. A half-full 209 all startled up, grumbling, plugging their ears, and packing their books a few. A few seconds after, the alarm stopped, but students are now being told to leave the building anyway. We’ll keep you posted on this unfortunate study interruption.

Update: 1245 PM – The alarm was a “real alarm” according to the security guard at the main desk. Butler is currently being cleared out and the fire department is arriving. Security informs Bwog that no one will be allowed back in until the building has been checked by the FDNY, which will hopefully take “around 15 minutes.”
