So three times now out of nowhere, an alarm has started essentially wailing nonstop for about five to ten minutes at a time. I have no idea why, or what alarm it is. There were no appliances on aside from the heating. I live in an apartment with a fire alarm and a carbon monoxide alarm. The most recent time, I pressed the silence button on both and nothing happened, it just kept going off for another few minutes. The battery wasn't even in the fire alarm the last time and I have no idea if these alarms are going off somehow or if it's something else. It's very loud and annoying and the fact that I have no way of silencing it so all the neighbors get to endure this too is equally annoying. Any idea what it might be? I don't want to have to call the apartment maintenance if it's something I can fix.

If you don't know call maintence.
It might actually be important

I would just call maintenance. There's a very good chance they'll know what it is and can fix it right away. Also, like someone else said, it might be important and that's why you can't turn it off.

My carbon monoxide alarm started going off, turns out it was old and needed to be replaced. Maybe that's it?
