Residential Flat save: Dereham: 11th June 2017

Residential Flat save: Dereham: 11th June 2017

Sunday 11th June was a fine day and the occupier of a two storey flat in Cowper Street, Dereham decided to have a barbecue. After eating they returned the hot coals to a bag of unused charcoal and placed the bag inside the flat before leaving the premises.

A fire ensured but luckily the flat had a BS9251 sprinkler system installed in 2011 and a single head extinguished the fire prior to the arrival of appliances from Norfolk F&RS.

A fire officer is reported to have said that without the sprinkler activation, the whole flat would have been lost. The sprinkler system was reinstated the following day
