sfo03.jpgA portion of San Francisco International Airport’s new Terminal 2 was evacuated early this morning, an airport spokesman said.

A fire alarm was activated at about 6:30 a.m., prompting the evacuation of the lobby area in Terminal 2, SFO spokesman Mike McCarron said.

It was a false alarm, McCarron said, and it appeared to have been caused by a mechanical error.

“It wasn’t a big deal at all,” McCarron said.

No one was injured and no flights were delayed.
