Boston Fire responded to a fire alarm on the third floor of the Little Building at around 3:45 P.M. Tuesday.

Residents evacuated onto Boston Common and two fire trucks arrived at the scene within minutes of the alarm. Students were quickly given the all-clear to re-enter the building. 

Boston Fire determined the cause of the alarm to be burnt food, believed to be popcorn.
