Firefighters with the Monarch Firefighters Community Outreach were sent to St. Luke's Hospital Tuesday to help with broken sprinklers.
Firefighters said the sprinklers burst due to the below freezing temperatures at around 5 p.m. An employee with St. Luke's said the pipes were in the lobby of the west parking garage and patients were not impacted. The elevator will need to be repaired.
