FDL Home Sprinkler Demonstration
Fond du Lac Fire Chief Peter O'Leary kicked off a side-by-side home sprinkler demonstration at the new Habitat for Humanity home at 16 South Hickory Street in Fond du Lac Friday. The home is the second Habitat home in the City to have a home sprinkler system.
State Senator Rick Gudex says he hopes home sprinkler systems will become more common practice.
Dan Gengler of the National Fire Sprinkler Association narrated the side-by-side demonstration at the corner of Division and Lincoln Streets.
One room was equipped with a sprinkler system and the other without.
The sprinkler quickly put out the fire in the room that had it.
The other room started going up in flames.
Less than two minutes.
