Firefighters were soaked by a water main break at the Hamilton City Centre Saturday evening.
Crews were called to the shopping centre around 5:30 p.m. Water was pouring from the ceiling at the York Street entrance and pooling at the feet of firefighters trying to contain the leak.
Police say the water had been shut off by 5:45 p.m., and city crews had begun cleaning up the mess. No one was reported injured.
Around the same time, Upper Gage Avenue was blocked both ways between Seventh Avenue and Fennell Avenue East for a water main break, police say.
