Sprinkler Save at Euless, Texas Apartment Complex

Thank you to Euless, Texas Fire Marshal Paul Smith for sending us this sprinkler save!

On March 19th at 12:51 p.m. the Euless Fire Department responded to a water flow alarm at an apartment complex. On arrival and investigation it was found that one sprinkler had activated in a closet in a three-story apartment building. The closet contained heating equipment for one apartment.

Side bar – By local ordinance we require full coverage of apartments even if built using NFPA 13R, so even though this was a small closet, it still was protected.
