Following an electrical fire in a retail store in North Wales which was controlled by the operation of an automatic fire sprinkler system, the North Wales Fire and Rescue Service is highlighting the benefits of sprinkler systems.

Due to the successful operation of the sprinkler system, typical of the systems installed by Fire Security, fire damage was limited to a light fitting (the ignition source) and light smoke damage to a fitting room cubicle.

Kevin Brain from North Wales Fire and Rescue Service said: “This incident clearly highlights how sprinkler systems can stop a fire in its tracks – saving lives and protecting property.”
