A water pipe burst in a Council Bluffs home Saturday morning, flooding the basement and knocking out power. The residents will have to stay somewhere else until the damage is repaired.

It happened around 4 a.m. near South 11th Street and 18th Avenue. A Black Hills Energy technician noticed an “electric” smell coming from the basement and called 911. Although there was no fire, the water damage is extensive.
