Mythbuster Monday: Fire Sprinklers

Fire sprinklers have been featured in films from Die Hard to Mean Girls. They’re used as diversions or even comic relief, but you might be surprised to learn how they actually work. For this Mythbuster Monday, Code Inspector Roger Smith runs through what really happens when a fire sprinkler activates.

⚠️Spoiler Alert: Most of those movie scenes might not have worked out so well.
