Chelan Fire and Rescue responded to an Automatic Fire Alarm this morning around 0614 hours at 510 North Cedar Street. Upon arrival, Rescue 71 and Engine 71 found the alarm system going off, a number of the residents from the complex were outside in the cold, but no fire. A broken water pipe in the ceiling was found to have set off the system. There was two to three inches of standing water throughout the first floor of the building. Crews worked quickly to shut down the water and get the residents back inside out of the cold. Further actions were taken to protect the electrical service room that had water pouring out of the ceiling. Chelan Fire and Rescue crews assisted the complex management with removing water from the first floor until private vendors can arrive.
