Fire Causes Evacuation in Diamond Terrace Condos

Posted on October 2, 2009 | by Denny Oh

Last night, 13 condos in downtown San Diego’s Diamond Terrace(located at 427 9th Ave) highrise were flooded by the fire sprinklers.  Apparently someone was using a heater(I’m assuming a space heater and not the condo’s heater) and placed it too close to the closet.  The ensuing fire triggered the sprinklers and 13 condos were evacuated.  According the CBS 8 News, no one was injured, but I’m sure a lot of people weren’t too happy.

I wonder why someone was using a heater?  It’s not even cold in San Diego!  Well, I’m glad no one got hurt and it’s good to know Diamond Terrace’s fire sprinklers work.

Three types of energy solutions fall into the category of renewable energy solutions: solar energy solutions, hydro energy solutions, and wind energy solutions.
