Cold causes Heidelberg sprinkler activation

A sprinkler line froze at a Heidelberg University building Tuesday evening, prompting the sprinkler system to activate.

Capt. Jim Boehler of Tiffin Fire and Rescue said the sprinkler activation caused water damage in the restaurant portion of The University Commons.

Firefighters help squeegee the water out and a cleaning crew then came in to address the damage.

Boehler was unsure of the extent of damage Tuesday evening.

He said a few students who were staying in the building were to stay in another dormitory until the sprinkler system was fixed.
