Fire alarm had first responders rushing to elementary school in Peru

Posted by wlpo on March 17, 2015

The end of the school day at Washington Elementary School in Peru provided some tense moments.

The Peru Fire Department sent a truck to the school Tuesday afternoon after the fire alarm went off at Washington. The school was evacuated for a short time.

Superintendent Mark Cross says it turned out to be an accidental alarm caused when the maintenance staff was cleaning and dust set a smoke detector off.
