An overly realistic Halloween decoration in a New York home caused a stir among neighbors and firefighters.
An elaborate Halloween display in a New York City home has caused quite a stir in the local fire department, NBC New York reports.
Firefighters from the town of Glens Falls in Warren County, located north of Saratoga Springs, responded to the home located in the area of Sanford Street on the evening of Saturday, September 30. It seemed to them that flames were bursting from inside the house.
However, the “fire” was not real, but only part of the show, which from the outside looked too real. Firefighters posted video of the home on social media in hopes that others would see it and not call 911.
“Thank you to the kind owner for permission to publish. This exhibit will be on Fridays and Saturdays through the end of the month,” the local firefighters union said in a Facebook post.
The spectacle was the result of “two LED lights, a fan, a silver leaf” and a smoke machine. Most commenters on Facebook, including firefighters, applauded the homeowners for their creativity.

However, one commenter noted, “It might be a good idea to notify the fire department that you’re doing this decor so they know if they get a call about it.”
