Even quickly extinguished fires can cause $1000’s in damage

“Salt Lake City Fire Department crews were dispatched to a fire at Cintas, a commercial laundry and uniform service, early Sunday morning.

SLCFD Capt. Adam Archuleta said firefighters were dispatched to the business at 1658 N. 4370 West at 12:43 a.m.

Although they had the blaze under control within a half-hour, the fire caused $80,000 to $100,000 in damage.

Archuleta said it could have been worse, but the sprinklers in the adjacent building did their job and prevented the flames from spreading to the main structure.”

It’s heart-breaking to learn that what takes so much time and effort to build can be destroyed in a matter of minutes. Given that it took 30 minutes for this fire to be brought under control, the amount of damage shouldn’t come as a complete shock. Also, consider that that cost assessment likely includes structural as well as property loss figures.
