Broken pump floods Yokota building
YOKOTA AIR BASE, Japan — A broken water pump in the ceiling of the Yokota Airman and Family Readiness Center flooded offices in the building with several inches of water on Monday night.
The base fire department responded to a call that water was pouring from the ceiling in one of the offices in the building, said Master Sgt. Karl Wiegard, assistant fire chief.
An initial investigation found that a pipe from a small water pump located in the ceiling of one of the first floor offices had broken, said Tech. Sgt. Michael Dulcoe, the noncommissioned officer in charge of the HVAC shop.
