A faulty sprinkler system flooded a Greene County office building housing thousands of important documents and records. Now the county is trying some unique methods to save the data.

A couple weeks ago, a neighbor found the sprinkler spraying and soaking the records. It caused significant damage to the building and the file cabinets.

The owners will have to recycle most of the records, but they are trying to save some.

"You'll find some records out there that we've gone through... now they'll actually go and freeze dry them and restore them back the best they can," said Russell Kinsler, maintenance director.

Only one computer suffered significant damage. The other concern now is mold in the walls. Officials say they may have to rebuild the entire building to get rid of it.
