Fire Service Respond To Pitts Bay Road Incident

January 29, 2017

At approximately 11.54pm tonight [Jan 29], the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service responded to a report of smoke at Wellesley House on Pitts Bay Road. The Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service responded with two vehicles staffed with 8 personnel according to the spokesperson.

Fire Service spokesperson Staff Officer Delton White said that “On our arrival we found what appeared to be smoke in the server room. Upon further investigation we discovered that the servers had overheated and caused the fire suppression system to activate.

“A small amount of suppression agent had been released to control the overheating as there was no actual fire. Fire Service personnel then used ventilation equipment to remove the agent from the room before the technicians arrived to declare the room safe.

“There were no injuries as a result of the incident and no need for an investigation.”

    “fire suppression system” – so was that FM200 or water? Very different impacts on a server room!

      “Fire Service personnel then used ventilation equipment to remove the agent from the room before the technicians arrived to declare the room safe.”

      Which one you think it was?

    • Water.....seriously says:

      Sometimes people should keep quiet and let people think they are daft, rather than speaking and removing all doubt

      What do you think they would put in a server room. If they used water then the waiters would all get wet while serving you your food. Honestly…think first

        Boy I hope you are trolling and being sarcastic. I trust that you know by server room they mean a place where computer servers are stored and not food.
