BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) - Bellingham police and firefighters are asking businesses not to pull the fire alarm just because someone claiming to be from a security company calls and says it has to be activated for a repair.

The Bellingham Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1p0Yw6N) multiple false alarms since Sunday because of the prank.

It caused water damage at one business when sprinklers activated.
