Conn. teen's body spray sets off school fire alarm
Submitted By AP Wire Service
MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP), May 11 - Officials say a fire alarm that went off at a Connecticut high school was activated by a student's ``overabundance'' of body spray in a locker room.
Firefighters were called to Middletown High School shortly after 3 p.m. Thursday.
Officials told The Middletown Press (http://bit.ly/Kej9rY ) that the student used an excessive amount of the scented spray and created a cloud of mist right below a heat sensor, which tripped the fire alarm.
Firefighters allowed students and teachers to return to the building shortly after arriving.
Officials deemed the call a ``routine accidental.''
