Burst pipe at Richmond City Hall soaks 3 floors

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A burst sprinkler pipe at Richmond City Hall Sunday night brought out four fire companies, the fire chief and battalion chief to work to contain the leaking water.

Authorities said the pipe burst on the 17th floor of City Hall just after 7 p.m. Sunday, and crews were on the scene by 7:50 p.m. Water on the 17th floor began spreading to the 15th and 16th floors, channeling down through the elevator shafts.

NBC12 has a crew on the way to the scene, and is working to confirm additional details.
