CITY OF MADISON (July 15, 2018) -A fire that broke out over the weekend at a FedEx distribution center was extinguished by an automatic fire sprinkler.

The City of Madison Fire Department responded to the call on Hanson Road for a water flow alarm. Firefighters entered the building to find an activated fire sprinkler that extinguished a fire.

Firefighters moved boxes in the area where the fire occurred to minimize damage and ventilated smoke from the building. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

According to FedEx, the items that caught fire were broken-down boxes and/or damaged and non-shippable products, not items waiting to be delivered to expectant customers.
