Remote control puts out fire

An elderly woman in Zurich called firefighters to report that her television set was burning.

When authorities arrived, they saw no signs of fire or smoke. What they did see was that the TV was tuned to a German station that aired the constant image of a fireplace in the early morning hours.

"The fire was extinguished with the press of a button," police said in a statement.
