Automatic Fire Sprinkler Saves Business from Destruction
 
A Las Vegas business was saved Sunday night because of an automatic fire sprinkler. Without the sprinkler, the business would have suffered considerable losses.

Las Vegas fire dispatchers received a call from Alarmco Alarm Company at 8:53 p.m. on Sunday night regarding the activation of the automatic fire sprinkler system at the Ultimate Bedroom furniture store,
located at 5240 West Charleston Boulevard. The business was closed
and unoccupied at the time. A full first-alarm assignment was dispatched to the alarm. At 9:01 p.m., Las Vegas fire engine 5 arrived on scene and found smoke inside the building.

Firefighters found some oily rags that were used earlier in the day for staining furniture that had caught fire through a process known as spontaneous combustion. The rag, which was soaked in oil stain, produced heat and ignited the furniture it was sitting on. Moments later, the automatic fire sprinkler above the burning furniture activated and kept the fire small until firefighters arrived on scene, just seven minutes later.

There was no damage to the building, only to some nearby furniture. Estimates were less than $10,000. Had the fire gone un-noticed, damage could have exceeded tens of thousands of dollars. Furniture
fires, especially if the fire goes unnoticed.

Because of the automatic fire sprinkler, damage was kept to a minimum, the area where firefighters had to work was safer and the
business owner and co-workers are very happy their business is open today.

There were no injuries in connection with the incident.
