South Bend, Ind. An elderly woman zapping food in the microwave got quite the surprise Friday morning, when the appliance caught on fire.

Firefighters were sent to Wood Ridge apartments around 10:30 a.m. Friday.

Wood Ridge is an assisted living community in South Bend.

The microwave malfunction caused a lot of smoke to fill the unit.

The complex's sprinkler system quickly put out the flames.

Thankfully, no one was injured.
