The Roseville Fire Department responded to a structure fire on August 10, 2010 at Roseville Yamaha located at 2014 Taylor Road. The call came in at 5:21 p.m. and a full fire department assignment was dispatched, including three engines, two trucks and two battalion chiefs.
Witnesses at the business reported visible smoke and flames in the building. They also reported that the building’s fire sprinkler system had activated.
When firefighters arrived they found smoke pouring from a service bay in the rear of the building. The fire had been extinguished by fire sprinklers. Fire and smoke damage was minimal and contained to the room of origin. The building did sustain moderate water damage due to the activation of the fire sprinkler system.
There were approximately 30 employees and customers in the building when the fire erupted. Two employees were in the room where the fire started. “We were lucky today:, stated Battalion Chief Kathy Finney. “In light of the fact that this fire involved flammable liquids there was a lot of potential that this could have been devastating. The fire sprinklers did their job.”
No injuries were reported. Interruption to the business should be minimal. The fire started in a service area where Yamaha employees were working on a Wave Runner. The exact cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
