WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — An official says no pieces of wrestling history or other memorabilia have been damaged by water that rushed out of a burst pipe at the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum in Waterloo.

Museum director Kyle Klingman says he suddenly heard rushing water while he was working in his office around 11:15 a.m. Tuesday. He soon discovered a deluge coming from what had been a frozen water pipe in a wall.

Klingman says he called the Waterloo Fire Department and then joined other staffers in putting memorabilia out of the water's reach. An estimated 7,500 gallons of water covered the floor in about half of the museum.
