If The Lumber Was Fire Treated During Framing This Building Would Have Had Less Damage And Been Safer For Firefighters To Fight.
This is the second arson attack on buildings under construction in 2019 already, after there were over 25 attacks in 2018.
The best proactive Applied Fire Science today is available to builders nation wide and all wood framed buildings need to defend 100 percent of the lumber during the framing stage or thay should be uninsurable from an arson attack loss. Showing up with water once lumber gains pace is never going to save the building from total loss, it saves other neighboring buildings only.
•M-Fire is hoping this builders reaches out to us to fire defend there rebuild. We have a builder that now defends all there high density wood framed apartments after one of their buildings burned down twice.
ST. GEORGE — A new stake center for the St. George East Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was heavily damaged by fire early Saturday.
The fire started just after 1 a.m. and burned quickly through the ceiling and attic. St. George Fire Chief Robert Stoker said a fire sprinkler system was installed but not yet functional in the building, which was nearing the end of its construction process.
Stoker said burn patterns suggest the fire started outside of the building and was started using some sort of fuel. Officials with the local police, fire and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are helping with the ongoing investigation.
The building, Stoker said, was expected to be finished in about a month and is now a total loss. Please see Article
