MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - MAPS says that custodial staff arrived this morning to find a broken sprinkler sending large amounts of water into the building.

The district reported that water had flowed into the gymnasium and down a flight of stairs, leaving one classroom with two inches of water.

The district’s emergency remediation company was called to assist in the cleanup. MAPS speculates that old damaged vents allowed cold air to freeze pipes and rupture the sprinkler.
