Park City Fire District crews responded to a leak caused by a small water line break underneath a sink in the Main Street museum around 8:30 a.m. on Thursday. Firefighters assisted City Hall staffers with stopping the leak and removing as much of the water as possible, according to Michelle Andersen, the fire district’s public information officer.

Morgan Pierce, the museum’s executive director, said there was minimal damage and no collections or exhibits were harmed. 



The building was closed on Thursday and Friday as staffers worked on cleanup. It was expected to reopen over the weekend.
