fire alarm

Last night the fire alarm went off in my motel room. At first, waking from a fuzzy sleep, I thought it was some kind of alarm from one of my devices, or that I had done something to cause it to go off. But when I discovered it I saw that was not the case. I went into the hall and it was ringing up and down the hall and lights were flashing. Eventually a couple came out of their room and left the building, probably the right thing to do, but I don't think anyone else did it.

Mary called th e front desk and they said someone on the second floor had set it off with burning popcorn or something like that.It was so loud. Took a bit to get back to sleep.
