Ocean City Restaurant Fire Ruled Accidental, Saved by Fire Sprinkler & Employee Training

An Ocean City restaurant was saved from serious fire damage on Tuesday, December 4th

The Ocean City Fire Department was called to respond to a reported building fire at Liquid Assets Restaurant just before 4:30 p.m.

Upon arrival, firefighters entered the evacuated building and found a single fire sprinkler that was actively flowing water near the propane oven, along with light smoke conditions and evidence of a fire that had been extinguished by the sprinkler system and an employee using a Class K fire extinguisher.

“The quick actions of the staff at Liquid Assets and the fire sprinkler system saved lives and property at Liquid Assets. This is one example of why the Office of the Fire Marshal maintains our Fire Protection Quality Assurance Program, to ensure all fire protection systems work as intended during an emergency,” said Fire Marshal David W. Hartley.
