Regular burglar/fire alarm near 13th & Fairmont/Girard
We live near 13th & Girard, and often hear a fire or burglar alarm going off at night. It was going off last night for at least half an hour, maybe at 11-something. I always thought it was behind us (over on Harvard), but last night I decided it was coming from 13th & Fairmont. It’s a loud continuous bell alarm, “r-r-r-r-r-ing”, not like a car alarm or anything. Does anyone else around here ever hear it? We’re a block away, and we can usually hear it inside the house. I can’t believe people aren’t always calling 911…. (I actually did last night, and naturally the alarm went silent two minutes before they came flying down the street… and, yes, they called me back. They were nice about it.)
Next time it happens I’m jumping on my bike to find the actual source, but I thought I’d ask if anyone else heard it.
