DENISON, Tex. -- Denison High School was evacuated Wednesday afternoon after a fire scare that turned out to be a false alarm.
Firefighters say they received a call from the alarm company, saying the system was activated but could not say where in the school it was coming from.
Crews searched the entire building while the entire student body stood outside in the chilly temperatures until authorities said it was safe to re-enter the building.
"I was in class, I was sleeping, the alarm thing went off and I thought it was my alarm clock but we all had to come outside. It was really cold, and we had to sit out here about 15 or 20 minutes." student Alma Medina said.
Firefighters say they are working with the alarm company to pinpoint where an alarm activation comes from in the future.
