fire sprinkler homeYoung Township, PA -- Firefighters were hindered by a lack of water supply when fighting a PA house fire yesterday.  By the time they got water supply, the home was engulfed.

The closest fire hydrant was 2 miles away.  Tankers were brought in the transport water to the fire.  Unfortunately, by the time firefighters were prepared to fight this fire, the home was completely engulfed in flames and the floors were destroyed.

Everyone inside the home escaped unharmed.  The cause of the fire is not yet known.  The home is a complete loss.

What is there were fire sprinklers installed in this home?  The outcome most certainly would have been different.
