A few sprinkler saves to report.
On the other side of the State in Daytona Beach, Florida two apartment workers rescued a man from his apartment as a sprinkler kept the fire in check. The article reports that the workers were able to get the man, suffering from diabetic shock, out of his apartment and fully extinguish the blaze with fire extinguishers. [orlandosentinel.com]
And finally from Springfield, Massachusetts. Even though the Fire Department reports that fire sprinklers “complicated their efforts” (because you’re not supposed to put, “water on burning metal”) I’ll count this as a save. I have a feeling things could’ve been much worse had there been no sprinklers. [The Republican; masslive.com]
