A pipe broke inside a Philadelphia apartment building this morning leaving some residents without water and others with water damage.

The burst pipe -- a valve leading to a laundry room washer -- flooded water inside the basement inside the A-4 building at the Park Waverly Apartments at 155 E Godfrey Avenue in the city’s Olney section around 5:45 a.m., according to firefighters.

Fire alarms went off and residents left the building, according to a resident.

About an inch of water flooded into the basement. 

The Philadelphia water Department came out and shut off the flow of water.

Crews say they hope to have water service restored to the apartments by 5 p.m. tonight.

Water damage was reported in two apartments on the bottom level of the building.

No one was hurt.
