Motor sends smoke through YMCA

A faulty motor on the roof of the YMCA in Hagerstown sent smoke - and a brief scare - into the building Tuesday afternoon, fire officials said.

Battalion Chief C. Kingsley Poole said electricians were working on the roof at 149 N. Prospect St. The ventilation system sucked the smoke inside, he said.

Someone pulled the fire alarm box and the building was evacuated, he said.

"No real problem; just a scare for everyone," Poole said. "They did the right thing."
