Local Authorities Offer Frozen Pipe Reminders

Posted: Updated:

Fire Departments want to remind people of the correct way to handle frozen pipes.

Using a hair dryer or a warm towel can help.

Turn off the main water if you notice frozen pipes.

"If you can locate where the freeze is at, and isolate that area, the best way to thaw that lines is don't use any type of flames or heating type device because you can set other things on fire. We recommend opening your cupboards if it's under a cabinet, or in a kitchen, or a bathroom," said Mark Caravasos, Morgantown Fire Chief.

If you are having trouble with frozen pipes call a local plumber or the authorities.
