Frozen sprinkler sets off false alarm at Lighthouse shelter

The Lighthouse Supported Living shelter was briefly evacuated Saturday morning after a frozen sprinkler broke and set off the fire alarm.

Saskatoon Fire Department battalion chief Mike Ralston said the crews responded and helped stop the flow of water from the sprinklers that were activated with the alarm.

“So the frozen sprinkler broke and started the water flow in the fire extinguishing system,” Ralston said.

He said four crew members replied and stayed until the shelter’s maintenance company arrived.

It is still unclear whether the sprinkler system caused flooding or damage to the building.
