Fire at commercial laundry business causes minimal damage

A fire at a Grand Junction commercial laundry business early this morning caused less than $5,000 damage, according to the Grand Junction Fire Department.

Fire crews responded to ALSCO, 702 S. Ninth St., a commercial laundry and linen service, about 1:10 a.m. and found an active fire inside a large bin containing clean rags and mop head, Battalion Chief John Williams said.

A fire sprinkler immediately adjacent to the burning bin activated, helping to keep the fire from spreading to other bins and pallets. Crews extinguished the fire with a hose line. ALSCO personnel also responded to the scene and activated the building’s heating and cooling system to remove smoke from the interior.

Williams credited the fire alarm and sprinkler systems for alerting the Fire Department and keeping the fire in check, limiting the damage.
