Homes with a sprinkler system require some special consideration when storing items on the top shelf of closets and pantry's. Fire loading is when combustibles are placed in close proximity to a heat source. When you have a sprinkler system, keep everything off the top shelf so the fire sprinkler system can operation property and spray from the sprinkler head can reach its intended area without items in the way. Items in the way can allow the fire to grow and make it harder or impossible for the sprinkler system to put out the fire.
