The Des Moines Fire Department says a sprinkler system helped keep a fire from spreading at an apartment complex for seniors.

Fire crews were called to South View Senior Living Apartments at 1900 SE 6th Street around 1:30 Thursday. When they arrived they found a fire on a stove in one of the apartments. The sprinkler system in the apartment quickly put out the fire.

No one was injured and officials say the damage was contained to one apartment.
