From this Reddit thread, which has now been deleted, we can gather that somebody did pull the fire alarm from a remaining comment. That being said, we’re not sure who pulled it or why.

According to a recent report by Inside the Magic, it’s not uncommon for a Cast Member to “deploy evacuation alarms” in order to encourage Guests to leave as quickly as possible.
