KDKA’s Rich Walsh reports that fire alarms started going off around 3 a.m. Sunday at the Boston hotel where the Steelers and many fans are staying.

Alarms were going off for about half an hour before guests were allowed to return to their rooms.

ESPN reported around 8 a.m. that Massachusetts State Police have arrested a 25-year-old Boston man who allegedly pulled the fire alarm. Sources told ESPN the man pulled a fire alarm in a stairwell near an exit, then ran out of the building to a waiting car with two other men and fled the scene.
