PETERSBURG, VA (WWBT) -

Fire investigators in Petersburg are trying to figure out what started a fire that caused thousands of dollars worth of damage inside of a public housing development.

Firefighters say flames broke out inside of a trash can at the Sycamore Towers apartments on Tuesday. A sprinkler system was set off on the third floor, causing water to trickle down all the way to the first.

No one was hurt, but the fire caused $10,000 worth of damage to the building. The cause is still under investigation.
