property fire sprinklersRockdale County, GA -- A commercial fire sprinkler stopped the spread of a printer fire on February 12 at 1:15am.

Firefighters were called to the scene and saw smoke coming from the side of the building.  The fire sprinklers activated and contained the fire to the printer.  Fire crews added water and ventilated the building.

The sprinkler system had just been serviced and did exactly what it was designed to do.  The sprinkler heads activated quickly and controlled the fire.  The fire could have easily spread throughout the 30k sqft property, but was contained to a single printing press.
