Sprinklers contain fire at Gerber Poultry

KIDRON  The Kidron Volunteer Fire Department is crediting Gerber Poultry’s sprinkler system with keeping fire under control Saturday night.

Crews were called for a fire alarm at 11:14 p.m. Saturday. The sprinkler system had kept the fire contained and crews worked to make sure materials were extinguished.

“This is why we encourage sprinkler systems,” the KVFD’s Facebook post reads. “First arriving units found water flow from the sprinkler system and active fire from a pallet of material. Crews made quick work of ensuring the materials were extinguished although the sprinkler had fairly well kept it contained.”
