The swing in temperatures is keeping crews busy as they respond to a number of calls of pipes bursting across the metro.

A viewer in Columbia Heights sent video after a pipe broke at their home overnight Friday, with water running into their garage.

Minneapolis fire officials tell KSTP they've had a hectic night responding to calls of pipes bursting in buildings all over downtown.

They worked on fixing a pipe that burst in the ceiling in the Skyway leading up to Macy's around 2 a.m.  

Officials say it wasn't too significant, but that crews were called back a second time, around 4 a.m. to fix it again.
