DETROIT (AP) - Crews are working to clean up following flooding at a courthouse in downtown Detroit that forced the relocation of several courtrooms.

WWJ-AM and The Detroit News say flooding at the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice was reported Tuesday morning. The courthouse is mostly open.

Zenell Brown, court administrator for the Third Circuit Court, says the flooding appears to have been caused by a broken water valve between the fourth and fifth floors. She says six courtrooms are affected and four are considered “inoperable” for the day.

Bill Jackson, a mitigation manager for Emergency Restoration, says his company was called early Tuesday. Jackson says his crews plan to “drain everything out.”
