Wrong address

Today, I was woken up at 3am by my apartment building's fire alarm. I loaded up my cats in their crates, brought them outside and realized it was below freezing (-5C or 23F) and snowing. I stood on the sidewalk in my thin Pyjamas and just watched the firefighters went into the wrong building... FML

It is possible that the alarm was going off in that building also or originated in that building so they went there first.

Either way better to be outside in the cold and have nothing happen then to stay inside and get hurt or burned alive.

No, unfortunately it was our building that it originated from the addresses of the building is just super similar so they mixed up the numbers 😅
But yes, it was better than an actual fire... three times in a two hour span though was definitely frustrating

I did, but when you’re woken up to a fire alarm, you aren’t thinking “Hey, I need to change my clothes and put myself in danger so I’m toasty warm outside since it’s winter.”
I was more focused on getting me and my animals to safety ASAP so the cold was more an afterthought
