Another Public Storage Fire

The cause of a fire at a Public Storage facility in Tampa, FL two days ago is unknown but what is known is that there were no fire sprinklers.

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue responded to the two-alarm fire in which 150 units were destroyed or suffered smoke and water damage. Structural damage is estimated at close to a million dollars with as yet unspecified losses by unit holders.

Nacole Ravette, spokeswoman for Hillsborough Fire Rescue, said that the building did not require sprinklers which considering the number of fires in storage facilities is an obvious omission in the regulations. Sprinklers may not prevent a fire from starting but they can help contain the fire after it starts.
