You mean, they did not bother putting sprinklers in the escape room? That probably would have helped some.

They aren't common in many places in the first place.

I am from America, and here they have sprinklers in every public place to help stop fires. Here they are very common, and I thought that everywhere else they were just as common, I guess I am mistaken. I am also surprised that this did not make the news here, considering how that at every mall in America you could probably find an escape room.

Sorry just looked at the sources, it did make some news here.

On a building this small, compartmentalisation and proper emergency egress would probably be sufficient, with sprinklers not adding much. If they did no good, though, they could do no harm. Of note, I saw some stories suggesting that the checks of escape rooms nationwide after this fire were revealing some disturbing things; huge number not up to standards, with many so bad they were shut down on the spot.
