    A sprinkler system malfunctioned at San Francisco International Airport this morning, flooding part of Terminal 1.

    The sprinkler malfunctioned at about 8:50 a.m., releasing "a lot of water" into the security area at Boarding Area C, airport duty manager Joe Walsh said.

    The security area was shut down, and passengers were told to go through security at Boarding Area B instead and were then bused to their gates, airport spokesman Michael McCarron said.

    Crews have been working to clean up the security area, and two security lines had reopened as of 11 a.m., Walsh said.
