Two downtown Madison businesses are cleaning up after a water leak that sprung overnight from frozen pipes. Fire crews originally were dispatched to the Towers on N. Frances Street to investigate an activated alarm. A leasing manager on-site pointed firefighters to the alarm panel, which led them to the basement where water was actively flooding out of two doors. There was also a considerable amount of steam, which had set off one of the smoke detectors. Further investigation revealed the fire pump was running, with significant water leaking out of one of the fire sprinkler heads. They returned to the alarm panel and heard a second alarm sounding. That’s when they found considerable amounts of water coming out of the Under Armor store on the 600 block of State Street.
