Letter: Sprinklers or not, still fire risk

Is Coun. Mike Morden serious about sprinklers protecting homeowners during a forest fire?

Re: ‘Protect us’ from wild fire, say Maple Ridge residents (The News, July 30).

If Coun. Mike Morden is serious about sprinklers protecting homeowners during a forest fire, he is very misinformed.

Whether or not we live in a rain forest, there is always a danger of fire.

An indoor sprinkler system would be of no use during a forest fire.

Perhaps he should watch a few documentaries about nature’s fury before making such ridiculous statements.
