Sprinkler system puts out early morning fire in Amherst

Shortly after 1:30 a.m. on Saturday, first responders were called to a fire at the Golden Booty Tanning Salon on University Drive.

The Amherst Fire Department told CBS 3 that when crews arrived, they forced their way into the building.

They said a fire had been burning in a utility room, but it had been extinguished by the building's automatic sprinkler system.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but it is not being considered suspicious.
