Swiss firefighters called to the home of an elderly woman who reported her TV was burning discovered the “fire” was just an image of a fireplace on the screen. 

Zurich authorities said the woman, who was not named, called about flames inside her television, but when they responded, no signs of fire or smoke were found. 

Instead, they discovered was the channel was set to a German station that in the early morning hours aired the constant image of a fireplace. 

The fire was extinguished with the press of a button.
