Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I make salaah alone at work in a very secluded area. What do I do if the fire alarm goes while busy with my fard salaah? Do I break my salaah or continue, I won’t know if it’s a drill or a real fire.


A: If you feel that you could be in danger then you may break your namaaz.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
