Sprinklers Save Norwegian Hotel
A 26 year old guest at the Scandic Bergen City Hotel was
arrested this weekend after he started a fire at 0430 in
his room on the seventh floor. He was drunk after a Christmas
party and still in the smoke-filled room when the hotel
security guard arrived to investigate.
Fortunately the hotel is protected by a sprinkler system
which had already extinguished the fire in his room. After
a precautionary check at the hospital he was returned to
the police. The other 121 guests were evacuated when the
fire alarm sounded but were soon able to return to their
rooms and get some sleep.
