Sprinkler save in Shrewsbury glass reinforced plastics (GRP) manufacturer

 

At 1448 hours on Tuesday 6 September 2016, a fire broke out in a GRP manufacturer sending thick black smoke across Shrewsbury.

 

The building measured approximately 60m x 30m and was of steel frame construction with brick lower walls, steel sides and a steel roof.

 

Crews were in attendance within minutes and observed that the fire had vented through a production extraction chimney. Two firefighters entered the building and were able to extinguish the fire using a hose reel jet as the area of the fire were being suppressed with the sprinkler system. A total of 7 sprinkler heads activated, effectively saving the building.

 

As a result of the sprinklers operating and assertive firefighting by the initial crews, the occupiers were able to start making plans to enter the building later that day and had begun limited production the following day.
