EXETER TWP., Pa. -

It was a lot warmer in Berks County Wednesday, but below freezing temperatures still caused problems.

A burst pipe left behind an icy mess Wednesday night in Exeter Township.

A pipe burst right behind the doors at the now vacant Wine and Spirits store at the Exeter Promenade on Perkiomen Avenue.

Water flowed out into the parking lot, quickly creating icy conditions.

Crews had to go into the also-vacant Giant grocery store next door to turn off the water.
