It happened Monday evening at the Brookdale Voorhees Nursing Center at 1301 Laurel Oak Road.
Nursing home personnel discovered a fractured water pipe associated with the water suppression system, which caused a portion of one of the ceilings to collapse.
The displaced residents were moved to another section of the building.
Officials say one firefighter suffered a minor injury and was treated at the scene.
