Fire Sprinklers Extinguish Fire in Senior Living Community

The Country Club Hills Fire Department responded to an alarm at Victory Centre, a senior living community, October 24, 10:40 a.m. Firefighters observed water running under a door. Two sprinklers activated and contained a fire in a chair and six packages of paper towel that were near a floor heater. According to training officer Jeff Cook, this is an example of how efficient the sprinklers did their job and extinguished the fire. He said it would have been a disaster if there were no sprinklers.
