Fire in assisted living facility quickly extinguished thanks to sprinkler system

February 24, 2018

The residents of a senior memory care and assisted living facility are safe today, thanks to the early activation of an overhead sprinkler system, and quick response by staff members.

 

Poulsbo Fire Department and North Kitsap Fire and Rescue were called to an activated fire alarm system. When firefighters arrived, they found that the sprinkler system managed to keep the fire contained to just the laundry room. Firefighters then completely extinguished the fire. The small fire at Brookdale Montclair Senior Living Facility on Lincoln Road, east of Highway 305, appeared to have to started in the dryer.

 

Firefighters remained on scene for about an hour to clear the smoke from the facility, and check on residents. Two people were treated for minor smoke inhalation and released. The Kitsap County Fire Marshal is investigating the scene.
