Pipes Burst At Area Schools

BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – The record cold snap left a mess in its aftermath on Thursday morning.

A pipe burst in Fairview High School’s boiler room, spilling water onto the floor. The damage was limited to the sprinkler system.

Maintenance workers were trying to fix the problem, but the water had to be temporarily shut off in the meantime.

The school planned to stay in session as the leak was limited to the boiler room. The water and heat were functioning properly by midday.

In Jefferson County three schools had broken pipes on Wednesday.

In Douglas Conunty Sierra Middle School in Parker was closed due to broken pipes. All students were sent home.

In Denver Public Schools six classrooms had water leaks.
