You can use

\setcapindent{0em}

A little example:

\documentclass{scrartcl}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\setcapindent{0em}

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}
  \centering
  \includegraphics[width=5cm]{ctanlion}
  \caption{\protect\lipsum[2]}
  \label{fig:test}
\end{figure}

\end{document}
