Well to be honest, I would be

Well to be honest, I would be more worried about smoke in this case rather than fire. Smoke is something that usually ends up killing people regardless if the fire burns them or not.

I kid you not friend,

I have seen sprinkler systems ran into freezers.

I know it took a lot of work and effort to do...

what I wonder is how they kept a straight face?

not a wet pipe

If you run a sprinkler system in a freezer or cold environment (usually outdoors under canopies) then they are usually dry pipe systems.

A fire would melt the device in the sprinkler head causing the air pressure inside to be released which opens a valve and water flows down the pipe to the sprinkler head.

did you just call me a "wet pipe"?

I just find it funny that a walk in freezer is basically a metal box.
it is also so frickin cold that nobody is ever in there long.
if I accept that it is REALLY possible for a fire to start in one....
and spread to the rest of the building......

I have seen that to
