WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah, March 30, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — Hundreds of gallons of water poured out of an office building in West Valley City Wednesday morning while business owners and waterworks personnel tried to figure out what triggered the flooding. 

The Patrick Henry building is part of the Franklin Covey complex at 2607 Decker Lake Blvd.

Debra Lund, spokeswoman for Franklin Covey, said the company has been told “a main city fire line that runs into the building” burst or started leaking sometime Wednesday morning. 

Personnel with the West Valley City Fire Department told Franklin Covey they won’t have any more information on what caused the flooding or how much water was released “until they dig up the line.”

“We wish we knew more,” Lund said, adding the company already has clean up crews in the building mopping up.

The building is occupied by ABS Telecom, Solutions II and Backcountry.

West Valley City fire crews and police were on the scene early Wednesday morning, and posted the video below on the West Valley City Police Twitter account
