Everyone calm down, the situation is under control. On January 10, 2017  people prepared for an ordinary day at Phoenix,  to find themselves outside for a hour. A smoke detector went off and triggered the alarm pushing the engineers to work on fixing the problem quickly, while Phoenix staff and students waited outside.

“It was fun, but I was cold,” said junior Daniel Estrada.

Eventually the engineers fixed the problem by switching the triggered smoke detector with a new one. Principal Wipachit called students and teachers back in the building stating that everything was under control, and Phoenix would have a normal school day.

“I think it was dumb, they should have let us go home,” said junior Terrence Marshall.

Instead of waiting outside in the cold several students chose to go home or to a local restaurant to keep warm.
