The sprinklers were activated Saturday afternoon and sent water spilling to the first, second and third floors by way of stairs, a service elevator shaft and an elevator shaft, Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott said.
Firefighters deactivated the fire alarm panel upon arriving at the scene, the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday.
"I don't believe there was any damage to council members' offices or furniture," Scott said.
