Broken pipe leads to severe damage at Easton Wells Fargo

EASTON, Pa. - A broken pipe caused major damage to a bank in Northampton County Tuesday morning. 

Easton firefighters received a call around 7 a.m. that the Well's Fargo on South 3rd Street had been flooded. 

Fire officials arrived to find a collapsed ceiling and a broken sprinkler pipe, however they are not sure which occurred first. There was about 2-3 inches of water across the bank floor, according to officials. 

Fire officials say the damage appeared to be severe. Crews are working on vacuuming out the water and doing repairs.

The Easton location remained closed Tuesday. Bank officials hope to reopen Wednesday or Thursday.
