Toddler has developed fears

My 2 yo has suddenly developed a fear for strange noises. He thinks it is a mouse, and rushes to close the door leading to a passage in our flat. How to get rid of this fear? We never talk of any monsters, nor try to intimidate him with anything. He is not even scolded at, at home or daycare. Thanks for the help.

play a game with him, you can try 'Going on a Bear Hunt' with actions and song along the corridor, and leave a teddy bear at the end of the song in a box behund the door and let him find it. it's fun and not scary at all. this way he can learn that his fear was not real. hope it helps
