A California couple has nailed it in their efforts to create a spooky scene in the spirit of Halloween.
Carmen and Travis Long, of Riverside, have decorated their home with a “Pirates of the Caribbean” theme for three years.
“We’ve been adding things every year,” Carmen Long told KABC. “It started with just skeletons, then we added a cannon in the back and the ship, the pretend fire on the side.”
It’s the fake fire that has prompted passersby to call 911 and request firefighters multiple times. The lights and fog smoke look all too real.
The calls have been so frequent that firefighters in the area have learned they don’t have to check on the house while the homeowners turn on the display during weekend evenings.
According to Carmen Long, the couple enjoys entertaining neighbors with the display, and they decorate their home for Christmas too.
