At Wednesday’s Board of Selectmen’s meeting, First Selectman Jim Zeoli informed the board of a problem at the Silverbrook Senior Housing Community.
Fire Sprinklers at Silverbrook were installed in August as part of an extensive improvement project.
On Monday, Jan 12, with the extreme cold, the pipes froze and burst and six apartments were flooded and damaged. (See Orange Live’s Facebook page for the fire calls that came in that day.)
Displaced residents have been living at the Marriott; one is staying in a vacant apartment in the complex.
First Selectman Jim Zeoli said someone is at fault and will be held accountable for it.
Orange Live will update this story whenever new information comes to light.
