Automatic Fire Sprinklers controlled a fire at a florist’s shop on Blackpool Promenade, saving the Coral Island leisure complex from disaster.

Lancashire’s chief fire officer Peter Holland said: “Fires often develop rapidly and immense damage can result if left unchecked, not least due to the spread of fire to property and premises some distance away from the original seat of the blaze.

But for the sprinkler system installed in the premises, that could have been the scenario facing us this morning.”

“The extensive investment in the Coral Island leisure complex, a premier attraction in the resort, includes the best type of fire protection there can be, a fire sprinkler system.”
