Before emergency personnel came, residents reported hearing an alarm go off in an adjacent building for around half an hour.
“The individual whose alarm is going off about Clockface is everything okay or does anyone know if where the alarm is originating from is okay?” one local said on a neighborhood Facebook group.
It’s been going off for almost a half-hour now; I’m not sure what alarm it is, but it sounds like a fire alarm or a house alarm, and I can hear it all over the four-acre property.”
