Flames went up and a sprinkler system activated at a Stafford County apartment complex.
Fire crews were called Friday, April 11, 2020, at 6:22 a.m., to 855 Abberley Drive, near the Cavalier Family Skating Center, for a report of a fire in a third-floor apartment.
When they arrived, crews found smoke in the third-floor hallway, and fire in the kitchen of a third-floor apartment. The fire was extinguished before it could spread to other apartments, said county fire chief Joseph Cardello.
Several apartments sustained water damage, and a property management company was working to clean up and help the affected residents.
Smoke detectors activated the fire alarm for the entire building and a sprinkler head in the affected apartment activated. No injuries were reported.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation, said Cardello.
