I mean, it doesn't have to be a literal fire. If you lose HVAC in a datacenter it heats extremely quickly.

It is also summer here in Europe and temperatures are a bit high.

Thank god they all are safe, Unlucky for me that I am on-call now and need to be awake.

An "elevated ambient temperature" event :)

There literally is no 'fire' in the report.

not a funny night for people working there.
