Fire Sprinkler System Saves Home
On April 17, 2010, at approximately 9:45 a.m., Marietta and Cobb County Fire units were dispatched to a single-family residential fire at 710 Pear Grove Pl. Marietta, GA.
Upon arrival crews found the fire had been extinguished. The officer on the scene interviewed the homeowner who stated they had been cooking fondue and the grease ignited. The homeowner then attempted to extinguish the fire but was unsuccessful. Fortunately the home was built with a fire sprinkler system that activated and extinguished the fire.
Although the response time was under eight minutes, fire can reach the point of flashover in fewer than two minutes. There is no doubt that damages were kept to a minimum due the fire sprinkler system.
For more information, call the Marietta Fire Department at 770-794-5458.
