District Fire Chief Howard Reed 352-2311
Time: 03:30 a.m.
This District Chief Howard Reed from District #1 of the Cincinnati Fire Department reporting on water leak that occurred four minutes after midnight at Sak's 5th Avenue Department store, located at 101 W. 5th Street on 3/1/02.
The leak occurred when a pipe that feeds the sprinkler system of Sak's broke at one the elbows. The damage to the pipe appeared to be caused by the cold temperature in the store's skywalk area and the age of the pipe. The water caused approximately $50,000.00 damage, $175,000.00 damage to the Closson's Interior Designer store located at 401 Race Street and $50,000.00 to the Hyatt Regency Hotel located at 161 W. 5th Street.
Twenty-six firefighters from two engine companies and four ladder companies were used at this incident. It took two hours and 30 minutes to remove the large volume of water from the three locations. After the completion of the water remover, the property was turn over to property employees.
For any additional information contact District Chief Howard Reed at 352-2311
