Sprinkler Save: Apartment Building Fire Snuffed Out by Fire Sprinklers
Las Vegas, NV -- An automatic sprinkler extinguished a mattress fire at an apartment building in downtown Las Vegas.
The fire sprinklers prevented the blaze from moving beyond the mattress. No one was injured.
Firefighters reported to the scene at 12:35am after receiving several reports about smoke on the fourth floor of the apartment building. When they investigated, they found that the fire sprinklers had already extinguished the fire.
The occupants of the apartment were not home when the fire broke out. Damage was estimated at under $500, and it was confined to the mattress.
