On March 6, 2022 @ 6:19 AM Sewickley VFD requested via automatic alarm Leetsdale, Fair Oaks, Aleppo Twp. and Emsworth VFD's to assist at Heritage Valley Sewickley Hospital for a reported smell of something electrical burning. Sewickley crews went to investigate and found water coming through the floor. After the mutual aid departments began to arrive it was discovered that a hot water pipe had burst and the steam set off the fire alarm. There was also a sprinkler head activated. Crews worked on containing the water coming through the floor while Sewickey ff's investigated the electrical burning smell. It was found that water had found its way into the electrical system, thereby causing the burning smell. Once the water hazard was mitigated the mutual aid departments were returned with Sewickley remaining on the scene. Once Sewickley's chief was comfortable that all the hazards had been eliminated the building was turned back over to the maintenance department. Sewickley then cleared the scene.
