BOISE, Idaho, April 19 (UPI) — Firefighters responding to screams for assistance in a burning Idaho home said they thought they were saving people but instead rescued a group of parrots.

Emergency crews first heard the pleas for help as they approached the outside of the residence in Boise.

“What was actually recorded was them saying ‘fire, fire,’ ” Victor Islas with the Middleton Fire Department said. “That’s what we got. ‘Help. Fire.’ Yeah. It’s a smart bird, smart bird. So there was actually nobody besides the birds inside the house.”

The birds were removed and given oxygen. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Crews told reporters the parrots must have been trained to issue warnings.
