Screeching alarms in the middle of the night, it’s a scenario that residents of one North Teas apartment complex say they are far too accustomed to. A real emergency is one thing, but residents say they’re tired of being woken up by false fire alarms.

A fire last week damaged 16 units at the Bent Creek Apartments in McKinney. Fire investigators noticed that none of the smoke detectors activated to warn residents.
