GLOVER, Vt. (AP) - A broken boiler hose led to the evacuation of 40 residents at a Vermont nursing home over the weekend.

The Caledonian Record (https://bit.ly/1FnllZT) reports the owner of the Union House Nursing Home in Glover said the main line from the boiler separated, setting off the sprinkler system Saturday.

Damage was limited to water from the sprinkler and damage to the ceiling.

Residents were evacuated to other facilities. It was hoped they would be back in their rooms by Tuesday.
