Burst Pipe Floods Cafes

A burst water pipe at Tauranga's Destiny Church cost two inner-city businesses about $2000 in takings during one of the busiest weekends of the year.

A week out from Christmas, restaurant Bravo and cafe Encore in Mid-City Mall were both evacuated and forced to close their doors during the busy Saturday lunch trade after water started running down the walls.

Jack Hogg, who owns both businesses with wife Nancy, described the scene as a "bit of a disaster all round".

"A water pipe burst in the Destiny Church (situated above the two businesses) and had apparently been going half the night. Water started pouring down the walls and we obviously had to shut down service for about two and a half hours," he said.

Tauranga Fire Brigade senior station officer Len Saben said a water pipe had burst in the ceiling of Destiny Church causing an area about the size of an average bedroom to collapse.

The water rose about 20 to 30mm across a floor area of about 150sq m including an office and creche in the church, he said.
