Damage put at $100K in Statehouse sprinkler leak

Associated Press - December 25, 2013 6:10 pm

Authorities in Topeka say a sprinkler malfunction at the Statehouse caused an estimated $100,000 in damage.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reportsĀ  firefighters were called to the Statehouse at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Fire Department Battalion Chief Ron Hufford says damage to the sprinkler system caused heavy leaking from pipes near a ground-floor entryway on the building’s north side.

Firefighters spent a couple of hours removing the water. The cause of the malfunction was under investigation.
