'Help! Fire!' Talking parrots cause house fire confusion

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - Emergency crews responded to a structure fire in Canyon County Friday night that caused some confusion.

Canyon County Dispatch says the fire was reported just west of Duff Lane on Highway 44, which is just outside Middleton.

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!"

1. Parrots are not dumb animals.

My Macaw is too smart [img][/img] She knows who is calling before I answer the phone because she understands the announcement made by the caller ID. It's a real problem when I have to hurry out the door to work. I'm on-call Monday through Friday. She needs to be locked in her cage before I can leave home.
