MIDDLEBURG HEIGHTS- Crews are on the scene trying to repair a water main break that caused quite a scene along Bagley Road and Bartholemew in Middleburg Heights.

It happened around 10 a.m. when a construction crew hit the water main.

John Goersmeyer with the Cleveland Water Department told FOX 8 News, a contractor doing work accidentally hit a water valve on a 24-inch water main,  causing the water to geyser into the air.

The incident sent water shooting higher than the telephone poles.
