RANGELY | The residents of the White River Village assisted living complex were surprised Tuesday, Oct. 11 by an unexpected test of a recently installed fire alarm system. Around 8 a.m., the fire alarms went off, awakening many residents. Everyone made it out of the building safely, only to discover there wasn’t actually a fire. Recent construction to remove a concrete floor and replace sewer lines created enough dust to set off the alarms. According to White River Village resident Edward Ballegeer, the Rangely fire chief, town manager and town building inspector arrived and soon had everything under control.
