Fire alarm goes off at Reds' hotel overnight

HOUSTON -- Many members of the Reds roster were somewhat sleep deprived Tuesday because of a fire alarm that sounded at the team hotel overnight. It proved to be a false alarm, but the noise persisted for approximately one hour.

A few Reds tweeted about the experience, including reliever J.J. Hoover.

Nothing says good nights rest like a false hotel emergency alarm at 3 am. Stay hot! Turn the stupid thing off!

From reliever Manny Parra:

And second baseman Brandon Phillips had a leading suspect behind the alarm.
