Water Back on After Main Break Floods Fort Worth Neighborhood

A city spokesperson said only one home suffered interior damage

Residents in Fort Worth's Westcliff neighborhood say their water is back on after a water main break sent water gushing down a street Friday morning.

Crews were finishing construction Saturday on a city street where the main broke.

A pipe dating to the 1950s along Ranch View Road was the origin of the spill, but the exact cause remained unknown, according to a city spokesperson.

"I could already tell immediately that it was going full down the street, effecting my neighbor's yard, my yard," homeowner Stacy Hollis said.

Despite the volume of water, only one home suffered interior damage, but as of Friday evening 50 households remained without water.

"It was rushing towards my house, I got my dog in in the nick of time there was like water all around her," homeowner Wendy Wright said.

Wright's backyard flooded, however, like most homes on the block, hers avoided any interior damage.
