The northern half of Straz Hall’s second floor was evacuated around 10 p.m. Monday night when a sprinkler head was tripped. The residents of room 213 claimed it was an accident.

Bill McKenna and Jon Halpern threw a water bottle from their couch towards the garbage can located in the kitchen. The bottle struck a sprinkler overhead and instantly doused the room. The accident also tripped the fire alarm.

Security questioned the residents of the room, but no further action was taken. Resident Assistants took photos and will submit a report to director of Residence Life Krystal Schofield by midnight.

Preliminary reports state that the men’s room will be uninhabitable for the rest of the year, and they will be relocated to the first floor, but security has not released a statement at this time.
