Westmoreland County Courthouse evacuated twice after fire alarms

Monday, Sept. 30, 2013, 4:09 p.m.
 

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.
