Water damage can be an aftermath of fires. Whether firefighters douse a blaze with their equipment or sprinkler systems get triggered to do so, a home or commercial building can become flooded and rendered uninhabitable by water.
A restaurant in Portland, for example, recently experienced this mishap. It took a small fire to create a big mess and disrupt the business operations of the restaurant and two other establishments below it. Jason Silverstein of the Statesman Journal has more on the story.
