Balky heater prompts school evacuation in Woodland
Thursday, March 7, 2013
Woodland Primary School turned a malfunctioning heater into an opportunity to run a fire drill Thursday.
Just after 2 p.m., Clark County Fire & Rescue was dispatched to 600 Bozarth St., where a malfunctioning heater was puffing out smoke, said Battalion Chief Tim Dawdy. There was no hazard, but staff treated the incident as a fire drill and evacuated everyone from the building.
Firefighters simply turned off the heater, Dawdy said.
