Firemen rush to college

03:11, Dec 14 2012

Firemen were called to Marlborough Girls' College in Blenheim yesterday after a smoke alarm went off in the staff kitchen.

Two appliances attended the callout, triggered by a staff member cooking, just before 11am.

Principal Karen Stewart said the alarm was triggered by steam.

The college had a new fire alarm system in place, she said.

Staff were having a farewell party for retiring staff.
