KCRA 3 Sacramento has confirmed the identity of the Roseville Galleria mall employee who shut off the fire-protection sprinklers during last year's fire.
ROSEVILLE, Calif. - KCRA 3 has obtained insurance claims filed against Placer County that identify the employee as a maintenance worker named John McCormick.
Placer County's Risk Management Deputy CEO Maryellen Peters said the McCormick was named in the city's After Action Report released about six months ago. However, his identity was not made public.
The claims state that damages to the businesses inside the Galleria were made worse by the sprinkler shut down.
