Winthrop Sees Rash Of Burst Sprinkler Pipes

WINTHROP (WBZ-AM) -- There was a river of water pipe issues in Winthrop Sunday afternoon, with four separate calls in about 40 minutes.

Fire Chief Paul Flanagan told WBZ-TV the first call was to the Middle-High School around 3:15 p.m., where a sprinkler line froze and caused water to go into the cafeteria and other areas of the first floor.

Just after that, there were two calls to condo complexes on Pleasant Street.

"We had a brand-new, 16-unit condominium building where two condominium units had waist-deep water in them," Chief Flanagan said.

Then, a water pipe burst at a 90-unit assisted living facility.

At the school, the mess was cleaned up in time for the school to open Monday.
