Fallout for Phoenix city workers due to Burton Barr Library flooding

- Fallout continues for several employees following the flooding earlier this year at the Burton Barr Central Library.

The library has been closed since July, after a storm caused severe water damage to the building.

According to Phoenix city officials, a corroded pipe led to the flooding, but officials said it could have been prevented.

A report finds multiple city workers knew about the problems, but failed to pass on the information to higher-ups.

Three employees have been fired, two others have been demoted, and one was suspended.

Meanwhile, repairs to the library could cost up to $10 million. The library is expected to be closed until June 2018.
