A broken water line in Fallbrook caused flooding and water damage to an alley on Sunday morning.

The flooding was first reported at 8:05 a.m. in an alley near the 2500 block of Olive Hill Road, according to the California Highway Patrol and the Fallbrook Public Utilities District.

The flooding prompted water service to be turned off in the area, which mainly affected nurseries, according to Chris Miller, spokesman for the Fallbrook Public Utilities District.

Officials said no homes were without water and businesses were notified.

A 10 by 20 foot area of asphalt in the area began to collapse due to the flooding, said Miller. "The pieces are slowly falling in,” he added.

The repairs were expected to be finished later in the day on Saturday.
