JONKOPING, Sweden, Nov. 1 (UPI) -- Swedish firefighters said they responded to a report of flames seen through an apartment's window only to discover it was a DVD of a fireplace.

Jonkoping firefighters said they were called Wednesday by workers at a senior care home who spotted flames through the window of a nearby apartment building, Swedish news agency TT reported Thursday.

"We quickly realized that it was one of those DVDs of a fireplace," firefighter Jerker Sturedahl said.

Emergency responders said the TV screen fire video was quite relaxing.

"We even stayed and watched the fire for a while afterward," police officer Goran Gunnarson said.
