Palatine firefighter/paramedics responded Sunday, February 3, 2019 at 12:21 a.m., the to an activated fire alarm at Sushi Para, 1268 East Dundee Road in Palatine. The first Palatine Fire Department crews arrived on the scene at 12:28 a.m. and reported a fire alarm activation with a sprinkler water flow. Firefighters were quickly able to confirm that a fire had occurred in the kitchen and was quickly extinguished by the building fire sprinkler system.
No civilians or firefighters were injured in the fire, which left the business uninhabitable. Damage estimates are not available at the time of this release, and the fire remains under investigation by Palatine Fire Department investigators.
Fire sprinklers are designed to detect heat from a fire and automatically activate, providing a flow of water that is intended to slow or extinguish a fire. A fire sprinkler system can provide enough early suppression to allow building occupants to safely evacuate the building before the fire spreads or further endangers life.
The Palatine Fire Department reminds everyone to identify a second exit from any commercial building. If a fire alarm sounds, take action and leave the building until firefighters have given the all clear to re-enter. Have an escape plan, practice it, and be prepared to use it in the event of any fire.
