Sprinkler credited for helping fight Waterloo apartment fire

Posted: Updated:

A sprinkler system at a Waterloo apartment building is being credited for keeping a fire from spreading to other apartments Sunday.

It happened around 2:30 p.m. at Pineview Apartments off West Fourth Street.

Firefighters say no one was inside at the time.

The fire was contained to one room on the second floor, thanks to the building's sprinkler system.

Fire officials say they believe the fire started on a couch in the apartment.

The second floor did receive some smoke and water damage.
