Shhhh! Nesting ospreys silence fire siren

SPRING LAKE, N.J. – A pair of ospreys has quieted a fire alarm in a tony New Jersey shore town.

The raptors have built a nest inside the Spring Lake Fire Department siren. By law, the nest can’t be disturbed, and that’s ruffled some feathers.

The siren has been turned off for the spring and summer. Firefighters and paramedics are relying on pagers and cellphones to alert them of emergencies.

First responders in the resort about 60 miles north of Atlantic City say so far things have been working smoothly.

But Fire Chief Tom Mullaney said Spring Lake could have a serious problem if it loses power or has a communications problem.
