    Several businesses in the Midway District were left without water service Saturday after a main break.

    The water main break was reported just before 10 a.m. near Midway Drive and Sports Arena Boulevard, officials confirmed.

    City crews had to shut off the main water line while working to repair the problem. As a result, several businesses in the area will likely be without water for the next 24 hours.

    Officials said a 6-inch line feeding a Home Depot store and surrounding shopping center burst underground. The cause of the main break is under investigation.

    Businesses deeply impacted by the water main break include a car wash and pet store.

    A fast-acting Petco pet store manager began filling buckets for drinking water and water circulation for fish tanks right before water service was shut down.
