DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A water main break on North Main Street in Dayton sent water shooting into the air Tuesday afternoon.

North Main Street is closed between Kurtz and Hillcrest avenues.  Repairs are expected to keep North Main Street closed through the evening.

Crews from the Dayton Water Department are making necessary repairs.  Engineers tell 2 NEWS they have no specific reason for the break.

This comes days after a pump failure caused flooding in the downtown area.
