Cleaning crews are now trying to dry
out the units in building 3040.....
Firefighters were called to the Roanoke
County complex....but they didn't find
fire.. .instead a lot of water.

Investigators say a roof hatch was
left open causing the sprinkler system
pipes in the attic to freeze and
rupture and in turn, that activated the
sprinkler system.
