Did They Check Under the Mat?

The fire alarm at 634 S. Spring has caused LAFD to have to respond three or four times in the last few weeks. Each time it's been a false alarm.

Today, though, the fire department showed up and no one was there. Turns out there's a plan for that, which I guess makes sense. They pulled out a ladder, stuck it up against the building and climbed up to a little plastic box secure metal box mounted 25 feet or so up. The firefighter tossed down a key and they opened up the door.

On first blush you'd think storing a key on the outside of the building wouldn't be very secure, but I guess who else carries around that tall of a ladder besides LAFD?
