Petersburg and Prince George County members operate at commercial fire alarm - #StaffimgMattersMinor Electrical Disturbance At Richard Bland College Quickly Controlled

A small fan in the IT room on the 2nd floor of Statesman Hall (gym) overheated causing smoke to trigger the building’s fire alarm. The alert call went out at 9:04pm. Campus police were immediately on the scene and within 5 to 8 minutes, Dinwiddie, Petersburg and Prince George Fire and EMT crews were at the College and in the building. Some 15 crews from the three jurisdictions responded.

There were no flames, only smoke. No one was in the building and there are no reported injuries. Damage to IT equipment is still being assessed.
