A water main break in Hillcrest overnight sent water shooting into the air and flooded the streets before city crews could cap it.
Crews were called to clean up the mess at the intersection of 7th and Robinson avenues at about 11:30 p.m.
According to City of San Diego spokesperson Arian Collins, a contractor working on an electrical conduit project struck the line.
City crews responded and shut of water but not before the streets of Hillcrest filled with water. A large hole was created so that repair workers could reach the break and patch up the line.
Repairs were completed Tuesday morning and water service was restored to customers at about 6 a.m., Collins said.
Footage sent in by NBC 7 viewer Dakota showed water shooting at least 20 feet into the air.
The city did not say how many residences were left without water as a result.
The intersection of 7th and Robinson was closed until at least 6 a.m. so repairs could be made.
