It happened shortly after 10 p.m. at Willits and Ashton Roads.

There are no road closures at this time. No evacuations were reported.

No word on what caused the water main break at this time.

A week ago a 48-inch transmission main broke at 21st and Bainbridge Street in South Philadelphia and caused a giant sink hole and dozens of evacuations.
