Pipe Bursts In Office Building Containing US Senator Shaheen's Office And Manchester Mental Health
Manchester, NH - Manchester Fire Department responded Saturday morning to a report of water and smoke coming from 2 Wall Street, a large commercial building.
Responders arrived to significant water flow from the front of the building and attempted to make entry. Initially, fire crews were hampered by a frozen device that holds the keys to the building.
Firefighters worked to shut off the water to the building once they confirmed there was not an actual fire, but it appears to be steam from a heater.
After about twenty minutes the water was shut off and the building owners were requested to the scene.
The building holds several offices including the office of US Senator Jeanne Shaheen and the officers of The Mental Health Center Of Greater Manchester.
It is unknown at this time how many office areas were affected by the water flow that appears to have come from a broken pipe. Firefighters from across New England are responding to multiple calls for frozen, burst, and broken pipes due to extreme cold.
