: : -I mean, "Fire" alarm... I would figure a zippo wouldn't make a difference by that point. Never heard of a fire alarm for a gas leak, but I have been evacuated from a building because of a gas leak.
: Yes, it was the fire alarm, but what other method would they have for evacuating an entire hotel? There wasn't any fire, either - turns out, a blown transformer had knocked out half the power in the hotel, as well as setting off the alarm. But given the situation, a flashlight is generally considered safer than an open flame.
