An electrical malfunction caused a tornado siren in the western portion of Union to sound before 5 a.m. Saturday. 

The siren was on for about 15 minutes before wires were diconnected.

City Administrator Russell Rost said that siren has malfunctioned in the past in "extreme" conditions including cold temperatures. 

He noted that the siren will be examined at by a technician.
