Sprinkler system helps extinguish fire

Posted: March 3, 2011 - 1:30pm

ANCHORAGE — Anchorage firefighters are crediting a sprinkler system for limiting a fire at an athletic club.

The fire broke out just before 6 a.m. Tuesday in the ladies steam room of the Alaska Club East on Tudor Road in Anchorage.

An off-duty fire captain used a fire extinguisher and kept the fire down until on-duty personnel arrived.

As firefighters entered the sauna room the sprinkler system activated and assisted crews in extinguishing the fire.

A spokesman says that if not for the system activating when it did, the fire could easily have spread to other parts of the building. Damage is estimated at $15,000. No one was injured.
