Sprinklers kept fire in check at Washington State apartment complex

Fire officials credit a sprinkler system with putting out a fire at an apartment complex in Renton, Washington this week. According to the Renton Reporter, no one was injured. Three families were displaced. Officials say the fire was started by flower-shaped decorative lights resting on the carpeted floor in the dining area. Fire crews didn’t need to deploy equipment, but helped clean up the water damage.

Renton Deputy Fire Chief Chad Michael stressed that the sprinkler system kept the fire in check. “The sprinkler system did its job and kept the impact to a pretty minimal amount,” he is quoted as saying. The chief’s words underscore what NFPA’s educational materials tell us. The community toolkit on home fire sprinklers and home fire sprinkler safety information, including the Home Fire Sprinklers tips sheet, reinforce the point that home fire sprinklers protect lives by keeping fires small.
