Fire Sprinkler Save

On Thursday October 12, 2017, just after 3:00 pm, a stove was reported to be on fire inside an apartment at the La Posada Apartments, 1900 W 30th Street. Arriving YFD firefighters made entry into a first story apartment, and found a fire sprinkler head in the kitchen had extinguished a fire that started on the stove top. The sprinkler head was shut down by YFD personnel who also confirmed the fire was extinguished and had not spread.
