Fire Sprinklers Control Fire (Photo) - 03/02/23

At approximately 11:20 pm on March 1, 2023 Redmond Fire & Rescue was alerted to a structure fire at the Redpoint apartments located at 1455 SW Pumice Ave. Upon the arrival of crews there was no visible smoke or fire from the apartment building. Upon further investigation it was determined a grease fire had occurred in a second floor kitchen and was quickly controlled and extinguished by the buildings fire sprinkler system. Crews assisted residents with water removal and ensured everyone was accounted for. 

One resident received minor burns and was treated on the scene. A total of 5 residents were displaced from two units.

Grease fires happen when oil, grease, or fat on a stovetop, oven, or deep-fat fryer gets hot enough to ignite. These fires burn very hot and can spread if not handled properly.

The instructions for how to put out a grease fire must be followed in this exact order:

  1. Turn off the stove.
  2. Cover the pot, pan, or fryer with a lid.
  3. Douse the fire with baking soda, salt, or a fire extinguisher—never water                                               

Fire sprinklers can dramatically reduce the heat, flames, and smoke produced in a fire. Properly installed and maintained fire sprinklers help save lives.

Redmond Fire & Rescue was assisted by Redmond Police Department.
