Officials have been trying to find the person who has a key to shut of a fire alarm that has blared for over 12 hours at a Pittsburgh-area public housing complex.

Residents of the Wood Street building in Wilkinsburg say the alarm went off about 6:30 p.m. Sunday when one resident burned some popcorn.

But the alarm, which features flashing strobe lights and a high-pitched screeching sound, has continued for more than 12 hours.

Allegheny County Housing Authority officials say they're trying to locate the person who can shut off the alarm.

Residents say they've been robbed of a night's sleep -- but also of the peace of mind that they'd be alerted if a real fire occurred in the meantime.
