Pipe bursts at Blackhawk Tech

MONROE - A burst sprinkler pipe on the Blackhawk Technical College campus triggered security and temporarily closed the college Monday. The pipe burst after frigid temperatures froze and expanded the water in the pipe, creating a sizable leak and triggering a fire alarm, said Gary Kohn, marketing and communications manager at BTC. The Monroe Fire Department responded to the alarm and quickly shut off the water supply, Kohn said.
