Truck cause water main break (Photo) - 02/26/24

Vancouver Fire responded to reports of a truck that struck a fire hydrant at around 11:20 this morning.  Engine 6 arrived to find 1 small truck on top of a fire hydrant with massive water flooding the nearby area.  Crews were unable to locate the water main shutoff due to high volumes of water and debris covering the street.  The water department responded and was able to shut down the main with special tools after thousands of gallons had escaped.  Witnesses stated vehicle occupants fled the scene prior to emergency personnel arrival.  Vancouver Police and Vancouver Public Works continued to keep westbound Burton Rd closed between 112th and 107th block while the hydrant and water main are repaired.
