Cold Weather Setting Off Fire Alarms at Clarendon Apartment Building

Market Common ClarendonNot only is the frigid weather dangerous for those spending time outdoors this week, in some cases it’s also causing problems for those trying to stay indoors.

At The Market Common apartment building in Clarendon, the cold weather is causing fire alarms to go off repeatedly, thanks to exposed sprinkler heads bursting in the parking garage.

The alarms are apparently going off in Market Common Clarendon retail stores and restaurants, as well.

The apartment’s management team sent the following email to residents last night, telling them that they probably don’t have to run outside into the cold whenever the fire alarm goes off this week.

Dear Valued Residents,

As we are sure many of you already know, in the past 48 hours the fire alarm in the building has been going off sporadically. The alarm is sounding due to the extremely low temperatures in the single digits causing exposed sprinklers heads in the parking garage to burst.

Our retail component is doing everything in their power to prevent the bursts, however, as the weather is expected to drop well below freezing there is high potential the alarms will go off again.

Please keep in mind that these alarms are testing false and they are not emergencies you need to evacuate the building for. However, per the Fire Marshall, you should prepare to evacuate the building any time a fire alarm is to sound.

Our team will be working around the clock to keep sending updates if it is a pipe burst and not an actual fire. In the event that you do see smoke or fire, please call 911.

We are actively working with our retail component to permanently fix this issue and appreciate your patience and understanding.

As always, thank you for calling The Market Common your home.

Thank you,

The Market Common
