Firefighters were called to the Diamond Terrace Condominiums on the 400 block of Ninth Ave. just before 5 a.m. Sunday. According to residents, a pipe burst and water began flooding into their apartments around that time. One resident told 10News the flooding looked like a waterfall coming down from the ceiling. "I was sound asleep and my neighbor rang the doorbell very anxiously because her apartment was getting flooded, and at that point the fire alarms went off and the announcement came over the whole building that we needed to evacuate," said Victoria Villanueva.
