Bursting Pipe Floods West Hartford Basement



    That dark line is the water coming up the basement stairs.

    A relative who went to check on a family member’s home today found feet of water in the basement from a burst pipe.

    The family who lives in the house on South Quaker Lane was away, so another family went to check on the property and found 6 feet of water in basement.

    The pipe that feeds the outdoor spigot had burst.

    This problem has been all-too-common since last week. Today, two schools and the Stamford-Norwalk courthouse are closed today because of pipes bursting.

    The Branford Fire Department offers the following tips to prevent the problem from happening at your home or business.
