DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — The cost to repair weather-related damage to water pipes at Ohio's largest military base has reached about $260,000

An official at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton said sub-zero temperatures two weeks ago caused the pipes to burst.

Randy Parmenter, chief of operations for civil engineering at the base, says the burst pipes caused leaks in about 50 buildings.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1ekUdJp ) reports that the problems led to a one-day closure of a child care center, and closed the civilian personnel office, the Wright-Patterson Club and Banquet Center and shut down a basketball court in a fitness center.

Parmenter said Friday that he had no information of any additional leaks caused by the latest below zero degrees cold snap this week.
