Yes, attic/cockloft spaces with exposed combustible structure must be protected with heads in accordance with NFPA 13/13R. Typically, we put a dry system in attic spaces due to the fear of freezing, despite insulation, as attics & plenums are not typically conditioned spaces where freeze protection is guaranteed.This fire seemed to originate in, and was largely confined to the peaked roof. As a matter of general practice, are these sort of roofs sprinklered? They generally don't sprinkler cocklofts to my knowledge, which is why firestops are essential.
