Fountain-like water main break in the Mile End district

There was a spectacular water main break in the Mile End district, which caused flooding. 

It happened Sunday morning around Park and Van Horne.

The break, which featured water shooting strongly into the air, was capped late in the morning, but repairing damage, for one, was expected to take a good part of the day. 

Area traffic was rerouted. 

What caused the break wasn't yet known.
