MESA, Ariz. -

A man was badly burned after a fire broke out inside an assisted living complex near Broadway and Higley Road.

The fire started around 2:45 a.m. in an apartment on the third floor.

Mesa fire spokesperson Larissa Dvorak says sprinklers were already going off and the fire had been put out when firefighters arrived.

However, Dvorak says a man living in the apartment got second and third degree burns on 50 percent of his body. He was taken Maricopa Medical Center's burn unit for treatment.

About 10 residents have apartments damaged by the sprinklers.

The man's name hasn't been released.
