Simple smoke alarm call with no fire is most popular firefighter story on web today

SNoopDogg

If you search “firefighter” in Google News today the first thing that pops up isn’t a dramatic fire or rescue or even a major scandal. It’s a smoke alarm call from Melbourne, Australia. Above and below are the action packed pictures that go with the story. Shame there is no helmet-cam video.

TMZ.com:

Snoop Dogg took the meaning of hotbox to a whole new level Thursday night … when he smoked out his Australian hotel room so intensely, firefighters RACED to the scene thinking there was a real fire!

Here’s what went down … cops say “smoke from an unidentified source” triggered a fire alarm around 10am … and firefighters who happened to be in the hotel rushed up to the scene to investigate the situation.

CBS News:

Firefighter Trevor Brown, the senior officer who arrived at the scene, said his team was caught off guard, to say the least, when they discovered the famous rapper inside the hotel room.

“He was pretty funny, a really nice guy,” Bowen told the Sydney Morning Herald. “If you didn’t know that he was someone famous you would just think he was a really nice guy.”

A spokesperson for the MFB has declined to say what exactly caused the fire alarm to set off, although it appears excessive smoke may have been a factor, as Snoop’s penchant for marijuana has been well-documented over the years.

    I would settle for Jennifer Aniston A bottle of vodka and whatever set the alarm off.

    We all know what kind of smoke tripped that alarm. 10AM, time to Wake N’ Bake with Snoop D-O-Double G.

    Seriously cool that he went the extra mile and let our Melbourne brothers snap a few photos.

    It appears that “excessive smoke” set off the smoke alarm…imagine that. I wonder if they’d make such a profound statement if excessive water flow had caused a flow alarm to sound off? Or if excessive burglars had tripped a burglar alarm?
