Broken water hydrant floods Mission Valley apartment complex

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A vehicle knocked over a fire hydrant at a large Mission Valley apartment complex Friday, causing a several-story-high geyser that flooded residences and garages on the property and displaced more than two dozen residents.
   
The accident in the 900 block of Camino de la Reina occurred about 11 a.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.
   
It took crews about a half-hour to halt the overflow, city spokesman Arian Collins said.
   
The flooding affected 16 apartments, SDFRD spokeswoman Monica Munoz said. 

The American Red Cross was called in to help arrange for alternate lodging for 23 adults and three children pending completion of cleanup and repairs, she said.
