Chelsea Tower floods

EL PASO, Texas - A water line feeding a sprinkler system ruptured Saturday, flooding floors of a south-central El Paso apartment building and displacing dozens of elderly residents.

It occurred at the Chelsea Tower apartments located at 600 Chelsea Street near Lincoln Park.

Officials said a total of 48 residents were being put up in local hotels until repairs can be completed.

The broken water line incident happened on a morning in which another El Paso apartment complex suffered a devastating fire that injured five people.
