Pipe Burst Does Damage To IL Capitol

(IRN) -- Several offices at the State Capitol had to evacuate Friday morning because of a pipe burst.

Dave Blanchette, spokesman for the state's Capital Development Board, says a four-inch sprinkler main was open for a half-hour to an hour before somebody noticed. Blanchette says that somebody was part of a crew doing HVAC work late Thursday.

The offices affected are on the west side of the Capitol, including some Senate offices on the third floor, the treasurer's office on the second floor, and the press room in between.

Blanchette says neither a cause nor a damage estimate is known. He says the first priority now is to keep everyone out and get everything dry. He says the offices affected could re-open as soon as Tuesday.
