CORPUS CHRISTI - A major water main break at the corner of Saratoga Boulevard and Hunt Drive has left at least 50 homes without water. It's still going strong after more than 2 hours.
Water Department officials said the break may have had something to do with fire crews using the mains to fight the grass fire next to Mt. Olive Lutheran Church
At first there was a 2-3 foot tall rush of water coming out. As soon as fire crews turned off their hoses, it became a 50 foot tall geyser right on the corner. That's not a good sight to see considering our extreme drought conditions and water restrictions.
That fire next to Mt. Olive Lutheran Church did not reach the building. All of the children attending school there were moved out of the building and taken to a nearby business for their own safety.
