The need for fire and water damage repair was not at the top of the year’s to-do list for one building owner. A science facility in Derry, NH which they owned experienced a huge fire in one of its labs. Faculty evacuated the building quickly, and thankfully no one was hurt, but the fire caused serious damage to the lab. The smoke and excessive heat triggered the interior sprinklers. Several of the building occupants tried to put out the fire themselves. Fortunately the firefighters came quickly and hosed down parts of the lab to put out the fire.
