MONTVILLE, NJ - Montville Volunteer Fire Department responded to Montville Township High School on June 12 when a plumbing repair tripped the fire alarm, according to Principal Douglas Sanford.

The fire alarm sounded at approximately 1:25 p.m. and the building was evacuated, Sanford told TAPinto Montville. The alarm was related to a plumbing repair being performed in the hallway outside of room 301; the repair had failed and leaking water triggered a fire sensor, he said. Maintenance personnel were on-site to address the leak. Members of the fire department double checked the building before allowing staff and students to return. MTHS returned to normal operations at approximately 1:40, according to Sanford.
