I work in Media Relations with LSU and have checked with our Facility Services staff to determine the cause of the fire alarms that evening. The alarms were caused by construction taking place in the Union, where they are building the new Olinde Career Center. Dust from construction was pulled into the vents and caused the alarms to go off. They were reset, but weren't able to be turned off by the staff on hand. Regrettably, the alarms disrupted the a number of events in the Union that evening.
