You never know what goes on behind closed doors and no one would know better than this woman. She did not say she was woken up by the smoke alarm, she said ALARM...that could be the clock! So she wakes up to the clcok alarm and sees that it is very smokey. that sentence totally makes sense to me. And anyway, when somke alarms go off some people knock it off the wall with a broom to shut it up! He could have taken it down and the batteries out before he realized there really was a fire.
