Update, 2:17 a.m: fire trucks gone, alarm off, all is well again Behind the Pink Wall!
A friend who lives at Preston Towers tells me this is the scene right now at The Athena, where a loud sound is keeping everyone awake at 1:40am: hour 2 of The Athena’s fire alarm.
“Two fire trucks have been out front the whole time; it is foggy but I haven’t seen flames,” she writes. “In a bad case of irony, this is the same alarm sound we heard almost exactly two years ago, when Preston Place (next to Athena) was on fire in the middle of the night.”
Lord, I hope it’s nothing serious.
