Fire officials are investing a prank phone call at a local hotel
Peg Broadcasting News Thursday February 12, 2015

Crossville fire fighters were called to the Comfort Suites on Peavine Road after a prank caller apparently convinced the clerk to pull the fire alarm. The caller told the clerk they were from the fire department and they were receiving a silent alarm. The clerk was then told to pull the fire alarm and then to spray the lobby with a fire extinguisher. The caller then instructed the clerk to break out the windows in the lobby, however a second person at the scene interrupted and hung up the phone and evacuated the building. Fire fighters found no fire at the scene when they arrived. Crossville Fire Chief Mike Turner says that fire officials will not call and direct one to do damage to property and would never suggest someone stay in a building that is possibly on fire.
