Disused buildings are especially vulnerable to fire. Sprinkler tank company Nationwide Water Solutions points to a blaze at a disused mill in Bradford. The four-storey building formerly housed an envelope business and was reported to be on fire yesterday (Tuesday).
More than 50 firefighters attended the blaze. Nearby residents were told to close doors and windows. Smoke from the mill could be seen more than three miles away. Black fumes were reported to be billowing into the sky. They were visible across the city. The scene is currently being ‘damped down’.
Countering fire risks with a sprinkler tank company
It may not be financially feasible for owners to equip disused buildings with state-of-the-art fire fighting equipment. However, property owners with premises located nearby should take action. If your business or public building is situated close to a vacant property, you need to consider the danger it poses to your assets.
Fires can spread quickly in areas where properties are located close together. A spokesman for Nationwide Water Solutions said: “Having a fully functioning automatic sprinkler system and finding a good sprinkler tank company is pivotal. While there is little you can do about a disused building, there is a lot you can do to protect your own. A sprinkler tank is especially important to ensure you tackle the first signs of a fire in your building with enough water.”
