Two fire sprinklers prevented a fire, believed to be caused by a faulty
extension cord,from destroying the Value City Furniture store in Calumet
The fire alarm for the store came into the department at 23:43
hours and companies arrived to find water flowing and some smoke
exiting the roof of the structure.
According to Assistant Chief Steve Williams, Calumet City Fire
Department, this is the second time sprinklers saved their business.
Several years ago a large fire in the warehouse caused 18 sprinklers
to activate, but only minimal structural damage occurred at that
Fire damage was contained to some plywood and limited merchandise
while smoke damage was primarily contained to the warehouse areas.
