A witness later told the Soton Tab the incident was “just a kitchen fire”. Another added that it “didn’t seem to be a big fire”, and residents were allowed to return back into the building by 11:20pm.

Many residents tweeted their amusement at the incident after a year of false alarms. One student posted on the Mayflower Facebook page just weeks after moving in “Happy 20th Fire Alarm.”, with another adding “insert generic fire alarm status here”.
