(MARYVILLE, Mo.) A Northwest Missouri State University fraternity house is closed for the semester due to water damage.

A press release from the university stated that pipes had burst at the Sigma Phi Epsilon house over New Year's Eve weekend. The damage caused students who lived at the residence to move into the dorms on or off campus.

The university also stated the water damage was mainly due to a furnace at the chapter house that had broken over Christmas break when temperatures dropped below zero degrees. 

The house will remain closed through the spring semester while repairs are made.

Chapter leaders worked to find the 25 members who lived at the residence a new place to stay over Christmas break. 

The fraternity currently has 73 active members.

Tomorrow we will see lots of sunshine as a area of high pressure continues to move into northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. The colder temperatures will start to move away from the area on Saturday. Then over the weekend we will warm up dramatically with highs in the 50s and watch for our next chance for rain on Sunday.
