PSU library fire alarm system damaged

People occupying the Portland State University library caused significant damage to the fire alarm system.

The alarm system box was pulled out of the wall, many pull stations were activated and fire extinguishers were sprayed throughout the building.

The Portland Fire Bureau says the internal fire suppression system remains intact. The pull stations must be reset and the emptied fire extinguishers replaced.

The building will be boarded up to prevent access until repairs are made.
