Sprinkler Save in Tampa, Florida

From the Saint Petersburg Times; fire sprinklers contained an electrical fire in Tampa Bay (article). The fire started in an electrical closet of a rug gallery and affected the pine shop next door. The damage was estimated at $800,000 which is higher than the damage typically reported when sprinklers are involved. Just speculation on my part but I would imagine these stores carried “high end” inventory. Maybe $800,000 is a drop in the bucket compared to the estimated total loss value.
