Convinced that a prank caller was from their corporate office, two Circle K employees trashed their store in an effort to turn off a fire alarm they were assured was going off.

According to KSAZ, the two employees at the Circle K store in Globe, Arizona, received a call from a person stating they were with Circle K corporate security and that a fire alarm was detected going off at their location.

While one employee stayed on the phone relaying instructions, the other employee began discharging fire extinguishers in the store as instructed.

“The first thing they asked him to do was discharge a fire extinguishers inside the fire, which apparently did not raise any alarms when they did that. Even though there were customers inside the store,” said a spokesperson with the Globe Police Department.

According to police the employees were then instructed to throw the fire extinguishers through the windows of the store, which they also did.

“They finally ordered them to break the computer which is kind of when the light bulb went off that this is a prank call… unfortunately it didn’t go off any sooner, and the store employees caused a significant amount of damage to the store,” the officer explained.

Following the damage the store was briefly closed and the broken windows were replaced with plywood.

The employees were not identified and no video taken from surveillance cameras inside the store was released.

President Donald Trump's attorney appears as himself in the faux documentary "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm," starring comedian Sacha Baron Cohen and Bulgarian actor Maria Bakalova.

Giuliani accepts an invitation to join Bakalova, who plays Borat's 15-year-old daughter, for a drink in a hotel bedroom after an interview, and Cohen bursts into the room after Guiliani lies down on a bed and stuffs his hand into his pants.

"He says he didn't do anything inappropriate," said host Whoopi Goldberg. "He's just sort of, you know, tucking his shirt in when he was laying on his back."

WATCH: Trump supporter gets tied up in knots defending president’s $750 income tax payments

A support of President Donald Trump this week struggled to defend the president paying just $750 per year in federal income tax.

During an interview with CNN correspondent Elle Reeve, a half-masked Trump supporter said that he wasn't bothered by the president's low tax bill because he figured all rich people pay so little in taxes.

"I would love to be able to comment on that," he replied. "I don't know. And it's one of those situations where you and I can both sit here and say if we made that kind of money, you know, you're going to play the tax game. It's set for millionaires to play the game."
