Fires in Sprinklered Warehouses
I work on a DLA Supply Base and most of our structures are warehouses. One warehouse is 1.2 million square feet. We run 1 engine with 4 men and 1 truck with 4 men. Has anyone had fires in sprinklered warehouses that overran the sprinklers? Also fires that shut down the warehouse operations due to damage. We need this information to head off a move to cut us to one company. Thanks for your time.

Braintree MA had one in a Babys-r-us last week-maybe it's in the news archives. 1.5mil in damages, I think.

Check with Green Bay, Wi., they had a huge warehouse/pulp mill fire. I don't know the specifics, but it could give you a start.
Stay Safe...and good luck!
