Sprinkler System Displaces Residents In Sussex County

Posted:

SEAFORD, Del.-Several residents of Hampton Circle in Seaford say they'll be out on the streets Thursday morning after the sprinkler system drenched their building Tuesday night.

The Seaford fire department tells WBOC the fire alarm in the Hampton Circle apartment building went off and triggered the sprinkler system, sending water everywhere and residents outside.

The company that own Hampton Circle has arranged for residents to stay at the Days Inn in Seaford through Thursday morning but residents without renters insurance say they're not sure where they'll stay after that.

"After tomorrow morning at 11 o'clock we're gonna be on our own ya know, we're gonna have to find our own place to live," Annette Holden said.

Stanley Towers is one of the luckier residents. "My wife and I have insurance and we're blessed and we'll be staying here for the next week or so until we can get back in the building or until however long it takes."

But for others like Cindy Marsch, they say the two days at the Days Inn is not enough to figure out their next step. Marsch previously had renters insurance but gave up the policy when it got too expensive.

"I did until the end of last month," Marsch said. "Holidays and new prices and everybody going up on everything, I had to let it go."

WBOC reached out to the Hampton Circle apartment office but they say they cannot comment at this time.
