A laundry room fire a the Blaine Super 8 was extinguished by the
fire sprinkler system. The alarm connected to the
sprinkler water flow sounded, but only on the second floor, resulting
in that floors occupants evacuating the building.
The first floor alarm did not sound due to a malfunctioned, and
firefighters found occupants still in their rooms on that
level. Since the fire had been extinguished by the sprinkler system,
first floor occupants were sheltered in their rooms until
the smoke could be cleared.
