The alarm "shut off pretty quickly, but it was loud enough to wake up -- and freak out -- the entire hotel," Abramson wrote. It also triggered a blaring fire truck to the scene as patrons evacuated their rooms. Not everyone panicked:
I asked a Dolphins player if he was forced to stand out in cold when fire alarm went off at 3 am: âHell no! I didnât get out of bed.ââ Jeff Darlington (@JeffDarlington) December 22, 2013
One immediate thought is that a rash of frisky Bills fans might have been involved, but there's zero proof of that.
As ProFootballTalk reported, it's the first known still-of-the-night fire alarm at a visiting team's hotel since both the Bills and New York Jets were awoken before playing the New England Patriots in 2009.
