BOSTON (WHDH) - A section of West Broadway Street in South Boston has been closed as crews work to stop a late-night water main break.

Water could be seen shooting out of the ground around 10 p.m. by the intersection with A Street, near the MBTA’s Broadway station. City officials said the incident was caused by a fire pipe bursting, causing significant street damage. Part of the road caved in, partially shutting down roads in the area.

Crews have been working to evaluate the extent of the main break while trying to stop any further water flow.
