Courthouse Fire Alarm Not Severe

Published: Sep 8, 2003

CLEARWATER - Fourteen fire rescue units - 12 from Clearwater, one from Largo and one from Bellaire Bluffs - responded to alarms at the Pinellas County Civil Courthouse at 315 Court St. on Sunday.
District Chief Randy Bacher said four units responded to reports of smoke and called for backup because of the size of the building.

Firefighters found minor problems in an elevator room, Bacher said.

No fire was found and ``the smoke was negligible, a very light haze,'' Bacher said.
