The reports states that, according to the Rochester Fire Department , crews were called to Lofts on 3rd just before four o’clock Sunday for an alarm going off in an apartment. They discovered a small fire had started on the stove and spread to nearby cabinets. But fortunately, the apartment's sprinkler system activated and put out the fire.


The damage is estimated at more than $5,000, but the fire officials say it could have been much worse if the sprinkler had not gone off.


The purpose of a residential fire sprinkler system is to save lives, but they also protect property and the environment.
