Fire in Horse Carriage Stable in Chicago

From Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages
September 2012

There is no legal requirement for sprinklers in New York City...

A fire in a carriage horse stable in Chicago on Friday, September 14, brings to mind one that occurred a few years ago in Chateau Stables on W. 48th St. in Manhattan.

As in the NYC fire, "they" say that no horses were injured in the Chicago fire. But what about smoke inhalation?

While some of the stables in NYC claim to have sprinklers, it is not known whether their systems are adequate. There is no legal requirement for sprinklers. There have been at least two bills in recent years that have required sprinklers in stables and other animal establishments such as pet stores, which did not move in the City Council.  

For more information and actions to take to end this abuse of horses, visit Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages.
