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.

The water department has turned off the water and is fixing the main.
