ELYRIA — The FirstMerit Bank on Court Street closed briefly Monday when a small storage room fire set off one of the bank’s sprinklers.
The Elyria Fire Department arrived at 9:14 a.m. to find water seeping into the bank’s lobby. The fire, they discovered, had ignited in a second-floor storage room. Capt. Robert Donofrio said the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
The water caused moderate damage, he said. The bank was closed for a short period of time.
