Sprinkler system bursts, apartments evacuated in Deptford, NJ

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

A number of residents are out of their homes after a sprinkler system burst overnight at an apartment complex in Deptford Township.

Water flowed down stairways and froze in the 300 building of the Locust Grove Apartments on Club Drive.

Action News is told 12 of the 24 units in the building had to be evacuated.

Affected residents are staying with family and friends.

Images from the Action Cam at the scene showed slick conditions in the stairwell areas, and sheets of frozen water in the parking lot.

Management says it is working to help affected residents, and hopes to have them back in their apartments before the end of the day Wednesday.
