WINFIELD | A frozen pipe in a fire suppression system burst Tuesday night at Chicagoland Christian Village, flooding a portion of the nursing home there and causing an interior ceiling collapse, officials said.
Jeremy Campbell, chief of the Lakes of the Four Seasons Volunteer Fire Force, said because the feeder pipe was part of a fire sprinkler system and triggered an alarm, his department received the call to respond.
Campbell said the pipe flooded the west wing of the nursing home at 6685 E. 117th Ave. near Lakes of the Four Seasons. The water from the pipe flooded the main floor and basement, Campbell said, and caused an interior ceiling to collapse.
No portions of the roof were damaged. No one was injured in the incident, he said. Residents of the wing were transferred to other areas of the facility without incident.
Campbell said parts of the west wing remain uninhabitable due to the extent of the water damage.
