|Little Canada, MN
July 8, 1999
AT 0500 hours, the Little Canada Fire Department responded to
Water-N-Woods Sporting Goods. Upon arrival the
department observed that the automatic fire sprinkler system had
extinguished a fire in the store. Further investigation
revealed that the store had been burglarized and several firearms
had been stolen. It a appeared that the fire had been set
to to cover up the burglary and theft. The resulting fire was extinguished
by six sprinkler heads, which also prevented the
fire from spreading beyond the immediate area of origin.
The store was closed for a couple days to conduct further investigation,
inventory and complete clean up.
