UPDATE: Warsaw Schools issued a second statement saying the alarm was triggered by accident when it was bumped by a student’s backpack.


A fire alarm at Warsaw Community High School turned out to be a false alarm.

Emergency personnel responded to the alarm around 9:20 a.m. Wednesday morning after a hand-pulled fire alarm was activated in the building.

Crews checked, and there was no emergency.

Warsaw Schools issued a statement saying they will investigate the situation and, if determined the alarm was pulled arbitrarily by a student, will enforce disciplinary consequences.
