Kitchen fire leads to evacuation of Cheney apartment complex

CHENEY, Wash. - A fire prompted an evacuation of the Eagle Point Apartments in Cheney Monday night.

Firefighters from the Cheney Fire Department and Spokane County Fire District 3 responded to a kitchen fire in one unit. Firefighters say an automatic fire sprinkler in the kitchen prevented the fire from spreading. 

According to Cheney Fire Battalion Chief Ken Johnson, this was the third fire in the Eagle Point Apartment complex that was stopped by a fire sprinkler. Because damage was limitied, Johnson says those who live in the apartment will be able to move back in in a few days. 

No one was injured.
