IDAHO (CNN) — Emergency crews responded to a structure fire in Canyon County, Idaho Friday night, April 17th that caused some confusion.
When firefighters arrived, they heard noises inside the house which lead them to believe there were people inside.
Once they got the flames contained, though, they discovered that the noises were actually coming from two parrots that were “talking.”
Firefighters say the birds were actually saying “Help!” and “Fire!”
“Help! Fire! Smart birds. Smart birds. So there was actually nobody besides the birds inside the house,” Victor Islas with Middleton Fire Communications said.
Crews removed the birds from the home and gave them oxygen. They are expected to be okay.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
