Pipe bursts, soaks toy store

KGMI News Reporting

BELLINGHAM, Wash. – A Bellingham toy store is open today, but part of Little Tiger Toys is off limits because of water damage.

A water pipe in the vacant apartment above the Grand Ave. business froze on Saturday.

When the store’s heaters turned on it thawed the pipe above, causing it to leak.

The Bellingham Fire Department helped to contain and remove the water.tiger tots 2

The store was able to reopen Sunday, but the back half of the building is closed off.

They hope to reopen fully Tuesday.
