    Construction at Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport set off a fire alarm Friday, prompting evacuations in Terminal B.

    Emergency crews responded to the scene and silenced the alarm by 8:05 p.m., according to spokeswoman Rosemary Barnes. The work was caused by activity at the airport's new gates, 29 and 30.

    Passengers were screened again, airport officials tweeted, apologizing for the inconvenience.
