Subject: Installation of Fire Sprinkler in Fume hood?

We are being told that our new fume hood requires a sprinkler inside the ho od in case of a fire. I'm thinking this isn't so hot especially when a wate r reactive chemical is in the hood! I'm also thinking this will compromise the structure of the hood. Has anyone had this come up or know reasons why this is required and IF its required?
