An aparment buidling in Ontario, Canada was spared last week when a fire in one of its units was promptly extinguished by a sprinkler head. According to an article in the Our Kingston online newspaper, the fire started on the stovetop in a 10th floor unit. According to the article, the smoke alarm in the unit had been disabled, but a single sprinkler head was able to extinguish the fire before it set off the building alarm.
