School evacuated in Ladd

LADD – Ladd Grade School was evacuated around 10 a.m. Friday after a fire alarm in the kitchen was triggered. Superintendent Michelle Zeko said when the alarm went off, students and staff were evacuated from the school to the fire station because of the light rain. 

Zeko said staff had been doing some cleaning in the kitchen, and it was believed hot steam may have been what triggered the alarm. Zeko said the fire department and gas company were on the scene scoping out the area before it was cleared for students and staff to re-enter about a half hour later.
