Sprinklers help extinguish commercial fire

POSTED: March 14, 2013 12:54 a.m.

A sprinkler system helped firefighters extinguish a fire Wednesday evening in the 1400 block of Candler Highway, Hall County Fire Chief David Kimbrell said.

A caller said workers had ignited a bale of scrap plastic inside a business.

Upon arrival, firefighters found smoke coming from the rear of an approximately 100,000-square-foot building.

The volume of materials created uncertainty over whether the fire was out, Kimbrell said.

Firefighters used heavy equipment to remove the materials, he said.

An investigator was sent to determine the exact cause of the fire.

There were no injuries, Kimbrell said.
