Carbondale, Colo. – Carbondale & Rural Fire Protection District was paged to Roaring Fork High School on Wednesday, April 6, 2016, at 12:38 p.m. for a report of fire alarm and water flowing from a sprinkler head.

Crews on scene found a sprinkler head in the auxiliary gym had activated and was flowing water. Firefighters completed a thorough investigation and determined that there was no fire activity in the building. It is unknown why the sprinkler head went off.

Students were being evacuated from the building when the fire department arrived.

Firefighters worked with Roaring Fork High School personnel to clean up the water in the auxiliary gym.   School officials released students for the rest of the day.

Carbondale Fire responded with 14 firefighters and four pieces of apparatus.
