Low water pressure caused a fire alarm in the Kansas Statehouse Saturday afternoon.

Kansas Highway Patrol says water pressure in the sprinkler system wasn't adequate.

It set off an alarm that the fire system was not at operating condition.

Just before 4:00 p.m., KHP evacuated everyone from the building.

The alarm was de-activated half an hour later and people were able to return inside.
