Angela Sheets filed a complaint Jan. 19 in Raleigh Circuit Court against Beckley Water Co. alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Jan. 22, 2016, she suffered extensive damage to her home when defendant's main water line burst and flooded her home. She alleges she was forced to expend $11,565 to have preventive repairs done on her home.
