A false alarm Monday afternoon, June 5, caused employees and students at the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences building to evacuate.

The Grand Forks Fire Department was dispatched to the scene at about 3:30 p.m., shortly after the school's fire alarms sounded. School representative Jessica Sobolik estimated more than 200 people were evacuated, some of whom were grade-school students in the building for an educational summer program.

The cause of the alarm was initially unknown but was quickly determined to be a non-threat by responding firefighters. Sobolik said the evacuees were back in the building within about 10 minutes of leaving.
