This would be the case if the pipe is frozen solid. When water freezes within a pipe, the volume of the water expands this causes the pipes to break at a weak point.

The Cause of Frozen Pipes and Water Damage
A frozen pipe generally occurs to plumbing that is not in a heated space when winter temperatures fall below freezing. When exposed to below freezing temps the water turns into ice and the pipe expands until it breaks a small slit into the copper.
Pipes that freeze first are usually located near outside walls that are exposed to the colder temperatures than pipes located throughout the middle of the structure. Some examples include outdoor hose bibs, pool lines, outdoor and indoor sprinkler systems, and other supply lines located in attics, basements, crawl spaces, garages, etc. Pipes in attics, crawl spaces & unheated rooms are particularly susceptible to freezing.
Usually, a frozen pipe is not often obvious because it is behind walls or in a crawl space leading into the home such as from an outside faucet. The flooding usually is caught much later after damaged has been done. An uncontrolled water leak from a broken pipe creates extensive flooding and water damage of carpeting, drywall, baseboards and furniture.
Many Michigan residents will go on vacation during the coldest months of the year. If there is an extended power failure or a furnace breakdown, a frozen pipe can appear very quickly. Without anyone at home, the water damage and clean up after the disaster can be quite extensive.
