Wheaton Dorm Evacuated By Sprinkler Problem

NORTON - Two floors of a Wheaton College dormitory were drenched by a broken sprinkler head around 9:30 p.m. on Saturday forcing the relocation of 30-40 students for the night.

Fire Capt. Shawn Simmons said its not known what caused the sprinkler head to break in a second floor hallway of Meadows West Dormitory, but the ensuing deluge soaked both the second and first floors.

No one was injured.
