Work on water towers triggers fire alarms


Maintenance work on two water towers caused several fire alarms to go off Tuesday morning in the city of Baxter.

The Brainerd Fire Department was called at 8:39 a.m. to fire alarms that sounded at Target, Fleet Farm and Mills GM, both on Dellwood Drive; Gander Outdoors on Edgewood Drive; Lindar Corporation on Hastings Road; and OfficeMax off Clearwater Road.

Firefighters investigated and learned the city of Baxter shut off both water towers as there was a drop in water pressure, causing the fire alarms to go off.
