At least 4 Iron Mountain facilities previously hit by fires

The owner of the storage facility that suffered a fatal fire today in Barracas, Iron Mountain, has seen at least four other establishments set ablaze in various parts of the world.

Two of the fires occurred in the United States, where the information storage company has its headquarters; while another took place in London and in Ottawa, Canada.

A BBC report dated July 13 2006 notes that "A huge fire has ripped through a six-storey paper storage warehouse in east London," adding that "close to 100 firefighters" tackled the blaze.

The same article reveals that just one week previously a facility in Ottawa had set alight, with thousands of boxes of data inside.

On March 21 1997 it was the New York Times who published a report concerning a "mysterious blaze" that destroyed a "warehouse of corporate documentation" in New Jersey; two days after another fire in a nearby facility, both belonging to Iron Mountain.

The newspaper quoted fireman Robert Davison, who declared that he was "sure that the first of the fires had been set intentionally," and that it was probable for the second.

In none of the fires have injuries or deaths to employees been reported.
