Water Main Break Shuts Stretch of Market Street, Floods Firehouse in West Philadelphia

Philadelphia Water Department crews are working to repair a water main break in West Philadelphia that has a stretch of Market Street shut down.

Fire officials said the break happened about 4 a.m. at 43rd and Market streets and caused several feet of water to flood the basement of a nearby firehouse, NBC10's Matt DeLucia learned at the scene.

A dialysis center across the street is also affected by the break, and a stretch of Market Street is shut down as crews work to fix it.

A water main in the same area burst several years ago, officials said.
