Fire alarm at Wayzata Depot tripped by spider web

The Wayzata Fire Department made a quick run down to the Wayzata Depot today for a fire alarm.  Turns out the whole thing was caused by a spider web that had been draped over a fire alarm within the building, according to Wayzata Chamber President Peggy Douglas.

The Chamber has occupied the Wayzata Depot since the late 1970's.  This is the first time the alarm has gone off to Douglas' recollection. "It's never gone off, not since we have been here! What a little spider can do!"
