Sprinkler save at Birmingham hotel 7th December 2014.


A report has been received concerning a sprinkler save at a city centre hotel in Five Ways, Birmingham, over the weekend of 6th/7th December.

At about 10pm on Saturday 6th December, at the end of the working day, a tumble dryer was unloaded at the leisure centre situated in the lower floors of the hotel. CCTV footage showed that at about 3am on Sunday 7th, a fire started in a laundry basket due to spontaneous combustion of the drying towelling material.

The fire alarm alerted staff and guests to the situation and one sprinkler head activated to suppress/extinguish the fire before the arrival of West Midlands Fire Service personnel.

Further information is awaited.
