A water main break closed the Erie County Courthouse this afternoon. Courthouse officials say around 1:00pm a significant sized water main break happened on the second and third floor of the building.

The water was immediately shut off so maintenance workers could begin working to fix the problem. Officials say they believe the leak was caused by an old pipe.

Many people were upset about the unexpected closure but officials say the courthouse was closed for safety reasons.

The courthouse will reopen tomorrow morning and anything planned for today will be rescheduled
