Broken hydrant creates geyser of water on Ward Ave.

Local News

Firefighters were called to Ward Avenue Monday evening after a broken hydrant sent a geyser of water shooting several stories into the air.

The water was so high, it could be seen from buildings several blocks away. What could barely be seen: a firefighter standing in the middle, trying to stop it.

The road had to be closed near Green Street as crews shut off the water and cleaned the mess.

Witnesses say a vehicle crashed into the hydrant and took off.

No injuries were reported.
