    False alarm in the wee hours 

    DULUTH, Minn. - It was nearing 1 a.m. Thursday, Sen. John Edwards was getting his beauty sleep after a long day on the campaign trail, and then ...

    "BUZZZZZ!!!!!!!"

    It was the fire alarm at the Radissan hotel in downtown Duluth and it kept blaring - loudly, insistently - for at least 20 minutes.

    About 50 patrons made their way to the hotel lobby. Including a few nervous-looking Secret Service agents, who had walked down 15 flights of stairs to check out what the @#!&* was going on. Duluth firefighters and police officers also showed up.

    But there was no sighting of Edwards, the Democrats' candidate for vice president. "He slept through the whole thing" in his room on the 15th floor, said one campaign source.

    Turns out if was a false alarm anyway. No fire. Just an "overheated dryer" in the hotel basement, reported one of Duluth's finest.
