Sprinkler System Puts out Condo Fire

Posted: 3/19/2014

A small fire in a condo in Aurora, IL was extinguished by the building's fire sprinklers. 

The cooking fire started on the third floor of a condo unit's kitchen.  The fire sprinkler contained the fire, and nearly extinguished it by the time firefighters arrived.

The fire sprinkler caused about $35,000 in water damage, but the loss would have been much higher if there were no fire sprinklers.  Not only would the damage be more expensive, but there could have been a loss of life.
