Fargo, North Dakota Automatic Sprinkler Controls Fire in Fargo High Rise
A single fire sprinkler is being credited with helping to contain a fire in an apartment on the 14th floor of a 22-story Fargo, North Dakota High Rise.
Crews were called to the fire at around 6:15 a.m. Saturday.
A man inside the apartment was removed to safety and evaluated. No one was injured.
The Fargo Housing Authority had crews on scene to take over clean up before fire crews had cleared. Read more.
NFSA is working diligently at the federal level to get Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to appropriate funds to retrofit high-rises with high-risk occupancies in cities that own buildings without fire sprinklers, which is nearly all urban cities.
Visit NFSA to find out about tax incentives for those that qualify.
NFSA is also committed to promoting high-rise retrofit. The 3rd edition Retrofit Guide will be out prior to the North American Fire Sprinkler Expo. See all guides here.
