HUTCHINSON, Kan. (KWCH) - As temperatures begin to rise, thawing out can lead to some major damage.

A Hutchison business owner found that out Wednesday morning. Mark Ebeling said a frozen sprinkler line broke and flooded his business, Ebeling Pools, Inc.

Ebeling shared photos and videos of the situation with Eyewitness News. In them, you can see him approaching the building and water pouring out of the business into the parking lot. From outside you can water gushing through a large hole in the wall right at the entrance. As Mark goes to enter the business, he pans his camera only to find water covering the floor of the entire business.
