Beaver County Courthouse Evacuated

Beaver County employees are back inside the courthouse this afternoon after an evacuation was ordered earlier this morning due to an activated fire alarm. Commissioners Chief of Staff Joe Weidner tells Beaver County Radio newsman Pat Septak that a light fixture began smoking at around 10:45 a.m., and that’s why the courthouse was evacuated. But he says it was not a big deal and that firefighters gave the all-clear about 30 minutes later and all employees were allowed back inside the building.
