Part of Lambert Airport evacuated

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Part of St. Louis' Lambert Airport has been evacuated two days in a row because of a sprinkler malfunction.

Spokesman Jeff Lea said Monday there was no fire or other emergency, and that the brief evacuations were done as a precaution.

He said a mechanical problem with a sprinkler prompted a sensor to issue an alarm.

He said part of Concourse A was evacuated to the tarmac for about 20 minutes Monday.

He said the problem has been isolated and crews are making the repair.
