Sprinklers Stop Fire: Automotive facility, Warwickshire

Just before a quarter to 11pm on Wednesday 30th April, Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service mobilised two appliances to a report of a fire at an automotive facility in the county.
On arrival the works fire team had also responded to the fire in an area of a 60m x 20m single storey industrial unit, used for the processing and moulding of electrical components.

It is reported that no fire-fighting action was required by crews as one head on the mains fed sprinkler system had operated. It is understood that this extinguished the fire and prevented fire spread to the rest of the building.

Fire damage was limited to and area of about 3m x2m though some disruption to the facility was caused due to the need to thoroughly clean the affected area.
