Knutsford factory sprinkler activation: 25th September 2017

October 3, 2017


At shortly before 3 pm on Monday 25th September 2017, Cheshire F&RS received a call to fire in ducting at a factory making plastic products on the Parkdale Industrial estate in Knutsford.


Two pumping appliances were despatched to deal with the fire in an extractor unit.


A company spokesperson reported that:"Quick reactions by ALBIS personnel, the response of the fire brigade and the activation of the sprinkler system meant that the fire was contained in the ducting for the extraction system and therefore damage was limited.


"We are assessing the full extent of the damage currently and expect the factory to be running normally once some remedial work and assessment has been completed.


"The evacuation of the factory was carried out extremely quickly and professionally by all and is a testament to our evacuation training and as a result most importantly no-one was injured in this incident.


"We thank the fire brigade for their excellent response."
