Downtown Lexington Target closes early after sprinkler above caused electrical problems

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)- The downtown Lexington target had to close early Monday night after a sprinkler system went off in the apartments above and caused electrical problems.

The fire department says the alarm went off around 5:15 p.m.

According to firefighters, people were cooking in the apartment above at The Hub apartment complex. The cooking set off the sprinkler system. Water drained down into the target, causing electrical problems that forced the store to close early.

Firefighters say two other apartments below at The Hub also had water damage, leaving three apartments unlivable right now.
