The London Fire Brigade have encouraged business to install sprinklers after they helped prevent the spread of a fire in Camden. The sprinkler system helped keep the fire under control until the fire brigade could arrive. It is thought that the cause of the fire was an electrical fault.
A London Fire Brigade spokesperson said: “In this case the sprinklers controlled the fire spread, limiting damage to the building and preventing anyone from being put at risk from fire.”
“As well as limiting fire damage and potentially saving lives, sprinklers and other fire suppression systems help with businesses continuity by minimising disruption and allowing businesses to get back to normal as soon as possible.”
