Very false alarm

A fire alarm was triggered in Hillcrest Hall on Aug. 18. Oakland University Police Department arrived on the scene with no answer from the residents of the room that triggered the alarm. At that point, Auburn Hills Fire Department arrived on the scene. They arrived at the room of interest and managed to get the door unlocked to allow the officers and fire department to inspect it. There were no people inside either of the dorm rooms. The Auburn Hills Fire Department located the smoke detector head, removed the cover and blew off some dust. After cleaning it, a test was done on the smoke detector head and the sensor flashed green, indicating full operation. All units then cleared the scene.
