Authorities in Las Vegas say an automatic fire sprinkler immediately extinguished a fire in a display cooler of the ice cream shop of a downtown hotel and casino.

The Fire Department says the incident early Thursday morning was contained to the shop on the second floor of the California Hotel and Casino and that guests and operations of the hotel and the casino weren't affected.

The department also says there was no evacuation or injury and that there was minimal smoke impact.

According to the department, the fire started in the cooler unit due to an electrical problem. Damage was estimated at $25,000.
