One woman was hurt Friday morning in a suspicious fire at a West Side nursing home.

It happened early at the Columbus Manor Residential Care Home in the 5100-block of West Jackson.

A fire department spokesperson says the fire was set in three different locations.

The sprinkler system kept the flames in check until the fire department arrived.

A woman in her 60s suffered smoke inhalation. A firefighter at the scene told ABC 7 she was found in a room with a burning mattress. She is expected to be okay.
