FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)  Residents had to evacuate part of the Savannah Springs Apartment complex on Fort Wayne’s northeast side because of a fire Wednesday.

Crews responded to the complex at 3706 Goeglein Road before 4 p.m.

People had evacuated the building prior to firefighters’ arrival.

Crews discovered the fire had started in a bedroom of a second floor apartment.

The flames were almost extinguished from the activation of a sprinkler system inside the room before firefighters pulled up. It only took firefighters about five minutes to get the flames under control.

Although fire and smoke damage was minimal, investigators said both the apartment where the fire started and an apartment below sustained water damage.

There were no injuries and the fire remains under investigation.
