Fire alarm and evacuation, but no fire at Heritage High School

Posted: February 13, 2013 at 4:01 p.m.

A fire alarm at Rogers Heritage High School evacuated the building, late Wednesday afternoon, but no fire was found.

The Heritage call was a false alarm, said Fire Chief Tom Jenkins.

Administrators pulled the fire alarm after smelling smoke in the southwest corner of the third floor. Students were evacuated and re-entered the building once it was cleared by firefighters, said assistant principal Jerrod Blockburger. Students were back in class before the end of seventh hour, he said.
