UPDATE: Cold Weather Causing Pipes to Burst
MIAMI VALLEY -- Bursting water mains and pipes are a big problem from the prolonged cold. As pipes thaw out, unwanted water is forcing businesses to close.
"I heard what I thought was an explosion!" Jamie Mitchell, Barnsider General Manager, exclaimed Tuesday.
Dripping roofs and ceiling tiles next to the salt and pepper is not the ideal environment for serving dinner. A sprinkler-system pipe burst wrecked havoc on the Barnsider Restaurant on North Main Street.
"I've been here for three years and nothing like this has ever happened since I've been here, but of course we've not had the weather as cold as what it's been," Mitchell explained.
Its a scene the Dayton Fire Department saw a lot today.
"A lot of houses, some apartment buildings and high rise building. Anywhere from a couple people living in a house to a couple hundred have been affected," Lt. Tyler McCoy, Dayton Fire Department, said.
Like guests of the Crown Plaza downtown where a broken water main valve sent water was cascading down the front of the building and rushing into the hotel lobby.
Fire crews were able to isolate the water leak through the sprinkler system before any serious damage was done.
Over at The Greene, The Cheesecake Factory evacuated following a ruptured water line.
In Miamisburg, this Family Dollar was victim of the same fate, forcing them to close shop for the day.
Lieutenant McCoy says the department responded to at least 30 water leaks throughout the day inside the city alone.
"It's probably more than that and as the night goes on we'll go to more runs," McCoy added.
The Crown Plaza remained occupied throughout the ordeal.
Fire officials tell us they will be employing a fire watch system until the sprinklers are repaired to ensure the building is still fire safe
DAYTON -- Employees at the Barnsider restaurant on North Main Street were shocked to find the restaurant soaked after a sprinkler system pipe burst, spraying water everywhere.
The restaurant has been open since 1975, and the manager says this is a first.
"I've been here for three years and nothing like this has ever happened since I've been here, but of course we've not had the weather as cold as what it's been," says General Manager Jamie Mitchell.
Despite the mess, the restaurant plans to reopen in a couple days.
