On Friday March 28th, the Mariner’s Cove Inn in Point Pleasant, NJ caught on fire causing the death of four individuals and serve injuries to eight others. Although the incident is said to be caused by a piece of furniture that caught fire from a cigarette, David Kurasz, executive director of the New Jersey Fire Sprinkler Advisory Board claims that the fire sprinklers were extremely outdated. Because the motel began operating in 1985 it was not equipped with the proper fire sprinkler installation that modern hotels, motels, and bed-and-breakfast are required to have. According to Kurasz “People don’t realize how quick a fire starts and how quick it travels and spreads. You have so much less time than you think you do in a fire situation. You have seconds, and it’s not ‘let me grab my things or let me do this.” Kurasz goes on to say that with a proper fire sprinkler installation, those individuals who died and suffered injuries would have survived.
