Officials say no long-term water damage is expected after a sprinkler pipe broke, flooding a Fairbanks theater.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports the flooding occurred last week at the Pioneer Park Centennial Center for the Arts, which contains a theater, a civic center and an art gallery.
Matt Want, a DJ who was working an event at the civic center, says an alarm went off Friday night, and he noticed water pooling in a stairwell.
He says he could hear water pouring into the theater, which was behind a locked door.
