Today approximately 1pm the fire alarm in Calit2 went off and the building had to be evacuated. It was later found out that it was due to users using improper materials in one of the furnaces in rm 1401. This is the second time this has occurred therefor the furnaces will be off limits until we come up with a solution. We will notify you when they are available (Please do not ask staff)
