Sprinklers in 2 Hour Fire Rated Stair Enclosure

With a 2 hour fire rated enclosed stairwell in a new 3 story storage facility, can you put a sprinkler system in the stairwell? It was my understanding that you could only put sprinklers in the fire rated stair enclosure that is used for egress under a stairwell that would be used for storing something. For the life of me, I cannot remember where in the code that would stipulate if it is or is not required. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
