Busted water line closes federal courthouse in Beaumont

The Jack Brooks Federal Building shut down Friday morning as Beaumont Fire Rescue crews pumped water out of the basement, according to information from the department.

Beaumont Fire Rescue received an early morning call regarding a busted water line near the 300 Willow St. building, said public information officer Scott Wheat.

The extent of the damage, if any, is not yet known, Wheat said. Courthouse officials could not immediately be reached for comment regarding when the building would be open.

The building's tenants also include U.S. District Courts, U.S. Postal Service, Department of Transportation and the Department of Labor, according to the U.S. General Services Administration.
