How a Little Slice of Burnt Toast Shut Down an Entire Airport
Someone, somewhere in the airport apparently burned some toast, which set off a fire alarm and forced everyone to evacuate the terminal building. Luckily, the evacuation only lasted about half an hour, and it sounds like the resulting delay wasn't bad enough to cause passengers to miss fights. Annoyed passengers did, however, begin tweeting pictures of fire trucks heading for the airport at the ripe hour of 5am.
Although the crisis wasn't averted, we don't consider the mystery solved. Who exactly is responsible for burning the toast? How sensitive are the Burlington airport's smoke alarms? Were there no windows open anywhere? And was it whole wheat or seven grain?
