YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - A fire that started in the kitchen could have turned into something much worse without the help of a fire sprinkler.
The Yuma Fire Department received reports of an apartment fire at La Posada Apartments last Sunday around 1 p.m.
Fire crews found a stovetop fire in the apartment at the scene, but the fire sprinkler had extinguished the fire.
They say a pot of oil had splashed and burned the stove's burner. The fire was thankfully extinguished before it could spread to the rest of the kitchen.
No injuries were reported.
