Sprinkler Save in Forest Grove, Oregon

Sprinklers saved a wood door manufacturing facility in Forest Grove, Oregon. Fire broke out about 3:30 am Monday morning under an exterior overhang. No injuries were reported. From the Article;

If that building had not had a sprinkling system, it’s likely we would all still be there,” David Nemeyer, fire inspector for the Forest Grove Fire Department, said nearly four hours after the fire was put out at 5:30 a.m. “The fire sprinklers did their job today. It really showed how important they are.”

Most of the business was operational on Tuesday and company execs expect to have it running at full capacity by Friday. [forestgrovenewstimes.com]
