E4 was dispatched on a report of a residential fire alarm.  Crew Members arrived on scene to find a two story residence with no fire or smoke showing; however an audible alarm could be heard coming from inside the residence.  While walking around the home checking for hazards, E4’s officer found water flowing out from under a door of the home.  E4’s officer established command and requested E2 to respond due to a possible sprinkler controlled fire.  Personnel made access to the home and discovered that a water line had broken inside causing significant damage to the interior.  E2 arrived on scene and BFR personnel shut off all utilities to the home, including water, and began the salvage and overhaul process.  Salvage covers were used to protect as much undamaged contents of the home as possible.  R1 responded to the scene with a wet/dry vacuum to assist with water removal.  Contact with the homeowner was made via phone and the property was secured.  With no further hazards found, all BFR units returned to quarters.
