A dozen adults have been displaced by an apartment fire in the north end.

The Canadian Red Cross says the blaze broke out in a top floor unit's kitchen after 6:30 p.m. Thursday on Bloomfield Street.

The fire triggered the sprinkler system in the three-storey building, causing significant water damage.

Three people were able to stay with friends or family, while the Red Cross and Shelter Nova Scotia found emergency lodging for the other nine at various hotels in the Halifax area.

The Red Cross is also helping out with emergency purchases like food, personal-care items and taxi fares.

There's no estimate yet when the tenants will be allowed to move back in their apartments.
