Halloween display at a house in Glen Falls, N.Y., is so good — it was 'fire'

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning, I'm A Martínez. Just how good are your Halloween decorations? For one household in Glen Falls, N.Y., this week, they were fire. In fact, they were so fire, the fire department received a call. But when firefighters showed up to the house, they discovered that it was not burning down. The problem was simply a fire illusion made by two LED lights, a box fan, silver sheets and a fog machine. The homeowner is hoping the city doesn't levy any fines because that would truly be a burn. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
