This side-by-side sprinkler demonstration was organized by the South Carolina Fire and Life Safety Education Association with the help from a grant from the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition.
This video shows how quickly fire in a non-sprinkled room can escalate from a wastebasket fire to complete flash-over conditions in 3 minutes 30 seconds. However, in a room with a sprinkler the fire is extinguished in 52 seconds.
Sponsors included Lowe's Home Improvement Center, Wayne Automatic Fire Sprinklers, ServiceMaster and the Fort Mill Fire Department. The February 19, 2011 demonstration was conducted in Fort Mill, S.C.
