Sprinkler break floods grocery store


WELLSVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) – A break in an underground sprinkler system caused gallons of water to gush from the floor and fill the Giant Food Mart in Wellsville.

This video was sent to us by a News 4 viewer and shows inches of water on the floor in the bakery section.

The extent of the damage the break caused is unknown. News 4 placed calls to the store Thursday afternoon and we are waiting to hear back from management.

According to the Wellsville Daily Reporter, the store is closed until 5 p.m. The store owner tells the paper very little product was lost as a result of the flooding.
