Active Day of Russellville has to evacuate due to exhaust fan in ceiling.

An exhaust fan in the ceiling caused the sprinkler system to activate at Active Day of Russellville Monday morning. According to director Jackie Hubbs, everyone got out safe.

Hubbs said she was very proud of the wonderful men and women who spend time at Active Day. "They did so well when it was time to evacuate the building," said Hubbs.

Those who attend Active Day were prepared said, Hubbs, as they experience monthly fire drills.

"I had to tell them this one was not a drill," Hubbs said. "We got out of the building very quickly."

Hubbs said she cannot thank enough those who responded to the fire. The Russellville Rural Fire Department and the Lewisburg Rural Fire Department, as well as the Logan County Sheriff's Department and the Burden Bearers.

After the situation was under control, Hubbs took those in attendance at Active Day to Roy's Barbeque for lunch.
