Burst pipe causes extensive damage at Denison rehab facility

Posted:

DENISON -- Freezing temperatures likely caused a pipe to burst at a rehabilitation center in Denison.

It happened this afternoon at the Reba McEntire Center for Rehabilitation near the old TMC.

Denison firefighters say a pipe burst in the ceiling which caused extensive flooding in the west end of the building.

The residential side of the facility wasn't damaged.

"Very grateful, you know, we were looking at first to having to evacuate the citizens and so forth, but, that's not going to have to happen, so we're in good shape," Asst. Chief Bill Ray said.

The burst pipe was part of the fire sprinkler system.

The extent and source of the damage are being evaluated.
