Newport fire alarms
Newport firefighters responded to two fire alarms in downtown Newport over the Easter weekend holiday. Battalion Chief Donnie Rollin said an alarm just after 7 pm Saturday sent firefighters to the ConAgra plant on East Broadway. He said a boiler had been shut down for the holiday weekend however maintenance workers had left valves partially open on the cookers. When firemen arrived, they found the building filled with steam, and a water line had also burst activating the fire alarm. Efforts to initially pinpoint the problem were hampered by the extensive steam. An alarm Sunday afternoon at 1 pm, sent firemen the to the third floor jail in the Cocke County courthouse. Battalion Chief Tim Pack said the smoke detector was activated by hot moisture from the clothes dryer in the laundry, however there was no fire.
