UPDATE Westport firefighters made two trips to Staples High School today for fire alarms triggered by a malfunctioning duct smoke detector, fire officials said.
The first shortly after 3:30 p.m. forced evacuation of the school. Firefighters found nothing amiss.
As they were leaving the school at about 4 p.m., alarms again went off, bringing back firefighters, according to dispatchers.
Again, nothing was found. The alarm was silenced, but strobes continued to go off. Repairs were completed and the system declared back in order at 6:35 p.m.
