Cdale students get extra-early release after false alarm

Ryan Summerlin

Students at Roaring Fork High School in Carbondale were evacuated from the school Wednesday afternoon after a fire alarm went off and at least one sprinkler head in the auxiliary gym was activated.

Carbondale Fire Department officials said in a press release they are unsure what triggered the alarm.

The department responded to the alarm at 12:38 p.m. and sent 14 firefighters and four emergency vehicles to the scene, where they determined there had been no fire, according to the press release.

Firefighters worked with school personnel to clean up the water in the gym, and students were released for the rest of the day, as it was a normal early release day anyway.

The Roaring Fork School District sent a follow up email alert to RFHS parents saying that the issue was resolved, and that school will resume as scheduled on Thursday.
