A fault in a high voltage feeder line forced the evacuation of the Science building on the University of Minnesota, Morris campus Wednesday.

According to UMM Maintenance/Operations Supervisor Mike Vangstad, there was a fault in one of the main high voltage feeder lines going into the Science building, causing it to arc. This caused quite a bit of smoke, which set off the fire alarm in the building around 2:30 p.m.
