Another Raw Lumber Buildings Burns To The Ground In Arizona Last Night

June 19, 2018 by Steve Conboy

Wood framed buildings are under attack all around the USA we are all wondering who is lighting these buildings on fire. Our builders are getting slammed by risk management premiums escalating as everyone is wondering who is next as we lose a project per month sometimes two.

An under-construction University of Arizona student housing building sustained major damage; 30 evacuated from nearby apartment complex.

TUCSON, AZ — An overnight fire in Tucson burned so hotly that two construction cranes melted, fire officials said Tuesday. The two-alarm fire at a construction site on East Broadway Boulevard just south of the University of Arizona campus caused more than $1 million damage. Major portions of a multi-story student housing building still under construction were destroyed in the blaze, which broke out around 2 a.m. No one was injured, but about 30 people in the area were evacuated and are being assisted by the Red Cross, the Tucson Fire Department said.

"Heat from the fire was so intense that nearby buildings, specifically a smaller set of apartments across the street, were evacuated due to concern they would ignite," the fire department said in a news release. "Quick action from firefighting crews prevented the fire from destroying the apartment building."

Mighty Fire Breakerâ„¢ is out to defend wood framed stick buildings and CLT Mass Timber from these types of attacks. We are trying to help lower there risk management premiums so we can keep up with the demands for housing using our renewable sustainable lumber. When these high density buildings are lite on fire the raw lumber has no way to slow the advance of the fire and by the time our Fire Chiefs get on site they make the call to stand down and defend the neighboring buildings only. At M Fire we soak these building with MFBJ113 a clean fire inhibitor to try and slow the advance so when the Fire Chief sees the fire struggling he can make the call to send his guys in to arrest the fire if our chemistry did not do it already says Conboy,
