Guests evacuated after water main break at Newton hotel

A major water main break forced guests out of their rooms on Monday at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. 

Crews have stopped the water leak but an electrical hazard is still causing concerns.

Firefighters say a pipe on an upper floor broke. 

Approximately 250 guests were evacuated from all floors and are in the hotel’s ballroom. 

Power was cut to the hotel before the building closed for the night. 

Fire officials say the leak was repaired quickly, but the danger remains until the water is pumped out.
