Id rather hear that message than 1) Sitting on hold for 30mins+   2) Hearing someone died due to a fire.

But most likely as reven said.

They were back up 5mins later, the system apparently went down for a few mins, maybe someone tripped the fire drill by mistake. Just thought the whole thing was funny, since it happened only a few minutes after I called the first time.

Perhaps someone was in need of a quick break! All is well now though. Everyone survived.
