Burnsville school reopens after flooding

By Courtney Reigh

Nicollet Junior High School in Burnsville reopened Wednesday after a frozen pipe thawed and burst Saturday, flooding the school.
The school was flooded with over 120,000 gallons of water, The Star Tribune reported. The leak started at 12:30 p.m. Saturday and was reported by a passerby at 3:30 p.m.
The leak elongated Thanksgiving break for students, who did not have school Thursday or Friday due to the holiday. Officials are not sure whether or not the students will have to make up the missed days, KARE reported.
