Single Fire Sprinkler Saves Townhome in Ramsey, Minnesota
Thank you to Ramsey, Minnesota Fire Marshal Carey Scheferli for sending us this sprinkler save! NFSA member Summit Fire Protection installed the sprinkler system in the building!
On Monday, February 18th at approximately 3:00 p.m., the Ramsey Fire Department responded to a report of a fire in a town-home complex. Responding fire crews arrived to an evacuated building with a report of a fire in a second level bedroom.
The was contained by an activation of a single sidewall sprinkler. Crews shut down the fire sprinkler system to limit any additional damage and began removing smoke from the building.
The building sustained virtually no fire damage as a result of the building’s working fire sprinkler system. The cause of the fire was a result of an unattended candle.
