Westmoreland County Courthouse evacuated twice after fire alarms
The Westmoreland County Courthouse in Greensburg was briefly evacuated twice Monday morning after two separate fire alarms.
The first alarm at 9:51 a.m. turned out to be a false alarm on the mezzanine of the old courthouse building.
Greensburg Fire Chief Ed Hutchinson said a second alarm went off 30 minutes later when someone smelled “something from an overheated computer.”
“Neither alarm turned out to be anything,” Hutchinson said.
