Sprinkler saves day at Southeast Technical 

A humidifier unit in one of the guitar building classrooms at Minnesota State College -Southeast Technical - originally installed to protect the condition of the wood - overheated and started on fire early Saturday morning (March 29, 2014) resulting in water damage to some equipment and supplies in the room.

Red Wing Fire Department received the alarm call at 12:07 a.m. and firefighters and paramedics were on scene within seven minutes, according to a release from Fire Capt. Jim Eppen. They found the fire had been extinguished by the automatic sprinkler system, Eppen said.

Only one of the sprinklers in the room went off and the system worked just as it should, said Michael Kroening, vice president of finance and administration for Southeast Technical, who is in charge of facilities management.
