Busted pipe affects Quality Inn lodgersApril 22, 2019
From Local Sources
FERDINAND — A water flow alarm activation Sunday night at the Quality Inn, 440 S. Main St., affected lodgers there.
Units of the Ferdinand Volunteer Fire Department responding to the 9:23 p.m. callout found that a sprinkler system line in the hotel attic had busted, according to Fire Chief John Hoppenjans.
The problem resulted in the sprinkler system having to be shut down, the chief said, which meant lodgers had to find other accommodations.
The busted pipe resulted in some third floor ceiling damage and it could be Tuesday before the hotel can reopen, according to Hoppenjans.
Four trucks and 20 firefighters responded. The department was on the scene two and a half hours with the Ferdinand Police Department assisting.
