Two Sprinkler Saves in recent weeks confirm that automatic water based fire suppression systems – sprinklers and water mist – can and will control, if not extinguish, fires caused by an electrical fault and in kitchens.

Merseyside Fire Rescue Service were alerted to a fire in a restaurant in Liverpool. The source of the blaze was an electrical fire which was extinguished by the premises commercial sprinkler system.

One fast response sprinkler head actuated, raising the alarm with no injuries reported. Minimal fire, smoke damage was sustained in the premises resulting in minimal impact to the business.

A cooking fire in a kitchen within a residential block of flats in North Ayrshire Council’s housing stock was contained and extinguished by the activation of the misting system. Fortunately, the resident was woken and no injuries were reported.
