February 24, 2006 | LOGAN -- Three inches of water
flooded the underground parking at Kampus Korner, a
housing facility on 800 East, when the water pipe that
feeds the fire system broke Thursday.
Members of the fire department as well as the police
force were automatically alerted through the system
and came to the scene of the accident but left shortly
after there was nothing more they could do.
Jason Low, property manager for Logan preferred property
management, said the pipe broke due to the warm weather.
"They don't break until it warms up," Low
Low said no property damage was evident within residences
because the problem occurred in the basement and the
fire sprinklers were not set off throughout the rest
of the building.
Low said they've "never had a froze one [pipe]
before" and that the water should drain out eventually
and the problem should be fixed.
"It'll be back-up and running tonight," Low
