Wednesday afternoon the Rockford Fire Department was dispatched for an automatic fire alarm at 126 S. 1st Street.
Upon our arrival our personnel were met by building occupants who stated there was smoke on the second floor. This incident was upgraded to a working incident.
Upon further investigation, it was found that a single FireSprinkler head activated directly over a fire in a garbage can in a second floor apartment.
The FireSprinkler allowed the occupant to escape her apartment unharmed and the alarm system quickly notified Rockford Fire and the building occupants.
