Park Ridge Fire Department Responds to Activated Fire Alarm at 50 N Northwest Hwy
On February 12, 2017 at 5:09 p.m. the Park Ridge Fire Department was dispatched to 50 N. Northwest Highway for an activated fire alarm. Crews arrived on the scene within four (4) minutes and determined there was a possible fire in the trash room located in the parking garage. Upon entering the trash room, there was water flowing from 4 sprinkler heads inside the trash chute. These heads activated due to a fire of undetermined cause in the dumpster itself. The fire was extinguished by the sprinkler system saving what could have been a large fire loss. Crews checked for fire extension and damage. There was minimal damage to the building from water and smoke. No injuries were reported and all building fire protection systems were placed back in service that night.
