Pratt students sent outside during unplanned fire department response Monday
Mid-morning on Monday, January 11, students and teachers at Pratt High School and Liberty Middle School got an unplanned break from classes.
According to information from the City of Pratt Fire Department, 911 call sent firefighters to Pratt High School for ventilation help after a fire extinguisher was discharged, setting off alarms and sending all students outside.
Some students went to Blythe Family Fitness parking lots and grassy areas, others were sent to the PHS parking lot on the west side of the building, still others went to the high school gymnasium.
Pratt firefighters brought in large fans to ventilate hallways, after which an “all clear” command was issued and students were sent back to their classrooms.
Just as firefighters were finished cleaning up from that incident another callout came, sending them to E. Cleveland Street in Pratt.
No fire was found at that residence and an “all clear” was issued.
No one was injured or hurt in either incident.
