The mystery of the 6am fire alarm at the 49ers’ hotel may already be solved…according to Christian McCaffrey’s mom.
While speaking about the incident on her “Your Mom” podcast, Lisa McCaffrey told Ashley Adamson that she had some “inside info” regarding the fire alarm.
“A little insider info, they did have the alarm pulled at 6 a.m. at the hotel,” Lisa stated. She would go on to suggest that it was an “inside job,” accusing a member of the Kansas City Chiefs’ staff of committing the act.
“Their hotel is big-time lockdown, so I don’t think it was a fan infiltrating. I bet it was maybe an employee from Kansas City,” Lisa suggested.
According to the original report, the fire alarm was pulled at the Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort and Spa at roughly 6am Thursday morning.
Several of the 49ers players have spoken out about it, claiming that it was annoying and clearly a prank, while also stating that it really only woke them up a few minutes earlier than they were scheduled to get up that morning.
Christian McCaffrey told reporters he “just laughed” when he heard the fire alarm go off, while Kittle claimed he locked himself in his bathroom for 20 minutes to avoid having to exit the hotel.
The Niners will take on the Chiefs in a rematch of Super Bowl 54 this Sunday. They are currently favored by 2 points over the defending champs.
