[ARCHIVED] Afternoon Fire Displaces One

When firefighters from the North County and Hollins stations, along with a city crew, arrived they reported a fire in the kitchen of a fourth floor apartment. The overhead fire sprinkler system had activated and primarily extinguished the fire before crews arrived.

Water from the sprinkler system did leak to the apartments directly below the fire apartment on each floor causing water damage to four apartments. At this time, it seems that one resident will be displaced and the management company is assisting them.

No injuries were reported.

Fire investigators are on scene.
