Pittsburgh firefighters responded to a fire in a fifth-floor room of an Upper Hill District hotel shortly after 11 p.m. Saturday.

Sprinklers at the Residence Inn on the 3800 block of Bigelow Boulevard extinguished the fire, and no one was injured, according to an Allegheny County emergency dispatcher.

A person who answered the phone at the hotel said only one room was evacuated.

The county's 911 center received the call at 11:06 and firefighters reported that the fire was out 15 minutes later.
