Burst fire sprinkler at LAX causes minor delays
A dump truck moving through Los Angeles International Airport struck a fire sprinkler overhead Wednesday morning, sending water showering to the ground and causing brief traffic congestion, an airport spokesman said.
The truck struck the sprinkler about 5:50 a.m. on the upper level of a pedestrian bridge between Terminals 5 and 6, said spokesman Marshall Lowe.
The sprinkler was shut off about 30 minutes later, and all traffic lanes were reopened in what Lowe called a "low-impact" incident.
He added that the airport is currently operating normally.
