Nearly 3,000 Americans die each year in house fires, and it's estimated you could have as little as three minutes to escape a home fire should one occur.

The city's fire officials were joined by the Massachusetts State Fire Marshal, Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition, and NFPA at a live demonstration showing how quickly home fire sprinklers work to subdue heat, flames and smoke in a very dangerous situation.
