Local fire department warning of the dangers of frozen pipes

A local fire department is warning of the dangers of frozen pipes.  Brookfield Volunteer Fire Company responded to a couple of water leaks last night.  One was in a residential home and the other in a commercial occupancy. 

Fire officials say subfreezing temperatures like those over the last few days can freeze pipes. The thaw that follows when the temperatures creep back up can cause unprotected pipes to burst. 

They reminded homeowners to properly insulate and heat all areas where there is plumbing.  Anyone with a vacant or not heated building it is advised to shut off and drain the water to that structure to prevent a leak.
