OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Visitation at the Oklahoma County jail has been canceled after a frozen pipe burst and flooded several floors.

Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office spokesman Mark Myers says the pipe burst about 1 p.m. Wednesday on the 10th floor. Water from the pipe flooded several floors and an elevator shaft.

Myers says the problem will be fixed within a couple of days, but that officials were forced to cancel jail visitation Wednesday.
