EAST LANSING — Visitors and employees of the East Lansing Hannah Community Center were disrupted Tuesday morning by a fire alarm.

The community center emptied around 11:10 a.m. in response to the alarm and people waited for the East Lansing Fire Department to arrive.

A fire truck parked out front, and two firefighters turned off the alarm as they entered the building. The firefighters deemed the community center safe to enter around 11:30 a.m. as they left.

When asked about the incident, Capt. Jeff Alleman said, “It was just a false alarm, that’s all.”

Wendy Longpre, assistant director of Parks, Recreation and Arts, thanked the firefighters as they held the doors open, letting people back into the building.

Community Center employees are investigating the false alarm.
