Fairfield–Firefighters responded to three consecutive calls on Fairfield Beach Road Friday morning  of reports of water running out the front doors and under the house.   A building inspector was also on scene.  The officials determined that the houses were not heated and the pipes froze.  Temperatures have risen and the pipes burst causing the flooding.   Two of the houses were rented to college students who are on vacation and they probably turned the heat down.   The other house was damaged by Hurricane Irene and was being repaired by a contractor.  Again the heat was suspected to have been turned down in the home and the pipes burst.
