Nursing home fire controlled with help from sprinkler system (Champaign, IL)

No one was hurt when a dryer caught fire at a west Champaign nursing home Thursday night. Champaign firefighters were called to Helia Healthcare of Champaign at 8:43 p.m. Thursday. Champaign Fire Marshal John Koller said fire was found in a dryer and quickly put out. The building's sprinkler sysem activated as well.  Residents were able to stay in the building, he said.


  1. That is amazing that this fire sprinkler system helped out so much with controlling this fire in this nursing home. This just goes to show that they really do their job and do make a difference to have. If it was not for these fire sprinklers, there could have been so much more damage done to the building and it could have really affected the people inside as well.
