    Default I think the building I am in is on fire...

    Just a small one, but as it's bucketing down outside. But there's a small fire in the basement. I heard the security in the lift talking about it when I was going up.

    Yes, they got the UP lift.

    I'm confused. You heard there was definitely a small fire, but you only think the building might be on fire?

    Hopefully, it'll be taken care of quickly.



    I was in a building with a fire once! Someone set fire to a bulletin board directly across from my room. I slept through the fire alarm and got cursed at by an angry firefighter who found me asleep in my bed when he opened up my room to use the water from my sink.

    Careful. The fire might be trying to lull you into a false sense of security.

    Do be careful on the stairs though. The fire probably won't be stupid enough to use the elevator.

    There was a fire in one of our elevators the other day. That hallway smelled weird for a while, but no one was hurt.

    Yes, they got the UP lift.
    I used to work in a major shopping centre ("mall", Americans), and I was arriving for an afternoon shift when two security guards RAN by me, one screaming into his radio "FIRE FIRE FIRE!" - they then skidded to a walk as we were approaching an area frequented by customers, whereupon they carried on at a quick stroll.

    "So should I start to evacuate my shop, then?"
    "Why?"
    "... because of the fire"
    "There's no fire"
    *guards exchange meaningful glances*
    "... okay"

    (I closed and evacuated my shop anyway, and was part-way through leaving when the centre fire alarm sounded...)

    If you think the building is on fire, I usually think the best thing to do is check. So I recommend you do that.

    Wow, when there was a mattress fire on the first floor they got us all out out lickety split double time, despite it being almost 2AM. Luckily for me I am a bit of a night owl, but less fun for those needed to get up early.

    Well, it sounds like things are under control, but seriously, fire is one of those things that can go from "Oh, we got this." to "HOLY %^$&*#@&%$ WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE" in a matter of seconds, so really, you should have at the very least gone to a place where it would be easy to leave the building immediately if their assessment of the situation was less than correct.

    Well, if there's still a fire, call a water bender. And be on the look out for anyone with a scarred face. They could have started it.

    Another good test is to offer the older man accompanying him some badly made green tea. If he proclaims it "hot leaf juice", you have a positive ID.

    There's an image of a sign in a building (that my google-fu is too weak to find) that says, "In case of fire, evacuate the building THEN tweet about it."
