Nursing Home Evacuated After Water Pipe Burst

Eighty residents were evacuated from an assisted nursing facility last Thursday morning due to a broken sprinkler head. Firefighters were called to the complex at around 10 a.m.

A fire department official at the scene said a broken sprinkler head caused flooding and ceiling tiles to collapse inside the three-story facility. No injuries were been reported. Several residents were picked by their relatives to be cared for. The remaining residents were placed on buses and taken to atemporary shelter. For more, read the story.
