ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Dozens of Albany city employees had to rush out of their offices into the frigid weather Friday.

That fire alarm had dozens of city employees grabbing their coats and heading for the doors in the tag and tax office downtown.

Employees spent at least 15 minutes in the cold waiting for word of what happened.

Turns out a malfunction in the water pressure set off the alarm.

Firefighters say that could be a result of the cold temperatures.

They say they respond to several false alarms every day.
