Four tenants at Bayview Manor, a senior housing complex in Ocean City, were displaced Thursday, Oct. 26, after a trash can caught fire and led to water damage in the building, according to Ocean City spokesman Doug Bergen.

Bergen confirmed that a trash can fire in one of the units at Bayview Manor activated the sprinkler system at 10:22 a.m., Oct. 26. The Ocean City Housing Authority, which operates units at Bayview Manor and Pecks Beach Village, relocated four residents to a local hotel while the units were cleaned and restored.

Ocean City firefighters responded to the scene. No injuries and no significant damage was reported beyond that caused by water from the sprinkler system.

Bergen said the cause of the trash can fire is under investigation.
