Broken pipe floods Adirondack hotel's basement

SARANAC LAKE, N.Y. (AP) — The basement of a historic Adirondack hotel sold to a New Hampshire company earlier this month is a soggy mess after it was flooded by up to 10 feet of water from a burst pipe.

Officials in the village of Saranac Lake tell the Adirondack Daily Enterprise (http://bit.ly/1kItXPw ) that a sprinkler line at the Hotel Saranac is believed to have broken last Friday night after it became frozen.

The property manager overseeing the hotel for Wilton, N.H.-based Roedel Companies didn't notice the problem until Tuesday morning. By then, officials say 6 to 10 feet of water had flooded the basement of the 86-year-old hotel.

Power and water to the hotel was shut off, and fire crews and village public works employees spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day pumping out the basement.
