Ronald McDonald House works on water-leak repairs
Families who had to leave the Ronald McDonald House in Rochester on Saturday because of a water leak might be able to return this weekend. About 80 people had to evacuate, according to a Ronald McDonald House official.
Damage caused by the leak is estimated at $40,000.
"Repairs are progressing very well," said Maggie Schoepski, the facility's community development director.
The water damage, which happened after a pinhole leak developed in the house's sprinkler system, caused water to leak through light fixtures on the second and third floors, according to the fire department.
The Ronald McDonald House provides free or low-priced lodging to families with children receiving medical treatment in Rochester.
All 37 families who were staying there were told to evacuate late Saturday afternoon. They were shuttled to the Ramada Hotel and Conference Center, where they've been staying.
