SOMERSWORTH - Broken sprinkler pipes poured water into several apartments Monday night at Maple Tree Apartments on Indigo Hill Road in Somersworth forcing residents to evacuate.
Jeff Francoeur, co-owner of the complex, said the building that had the problem has 14 units. The ceilings and rugs in those units as well as the hallways suffered thee most damage.
Residents in those apartments have either been placed in vacant apartments owned by Francoeur Realty or found places to stay with relatives or friends. Francoeur estimated that the number of people displaced is fewer than 30.
The damage to the building is not structural and Francoeur expects the apartments to be habitable within a few days. He said the damage is estimated to be about $60,000.
