The 8-inch water main broke on the 7600 block of Elmwood Avenue around 6 p.m. Monday. The water caused the street to partially collapse.

Crews with the Philadelphia Water Department arrived at the scene. Around 50 properties in the area are without water. The road was closed as crews made repairs.

Repairs were completed Tuesday morning and service restored, said water department spokesman John DiGiulio.
