This parrot started squawking an impersonation of a smoke alarm at a home and soon, firefighters arrived to put out the blaze… that never was!
Imagine these firefighters’ surprise when they arrived at a house after the fire alarm had been heard three times, only not to see any flames or smoke. They figured there must have been a false alarm, so cleaned out the smoke detector at the home and were ready to head out back to the station. But then they heard the alarm go off again, and this time, they realized what it was. The “alarm” was actually one of two pet birds that were in the home, impersonating the sound!
“We’ve never had that happen before… it was amazing,” a firefighter later said. It turns out that the smoke alarm had gone off incorrectly the first time, but was then twice mimicked by one of the birds. And they did a pretty impressive job!
