A water main break left a Fallbrook neighborhood without water overnight.

The pipe broke around 10:30 p.m. Monday near Pala Mesa Drive and Almendra Court near the Pala Mesa Resort.

It took water crews two hours to find the source and shut off the water.

During that time, a huge geyser shot into the night sky and blocked traffic.

Two lines in the area were down as of 6 a.m. Tuesday.

The Rainbow Municipal Water District was not sure when water service to the area will be restored.
