County office building evacuated

The fire department was called this morning to respond to the new county office building downtown at Park and Front Streets. Alarms were going off inside and all occupants had an impromptu opportunity to enjoy the late morning sun.

The all clear was given just before noon and workers and those there on business returned to pick up where they left off.

It looked as if this was a false alarm, nevertheless The Plaintalker will bring you further details as we learn them.
