ETNA (KDKA) — Crews spent much of the evening repairing a water main that burst in Etna late Thursday afternoon.

They had to dig a large trench along Locust Street.

The break sent water gushing into the basement of 106 Locust.

The Hampton-Shaler Water Authority says nearly 70 homes were without service for a couple of hours, but they got it restored around 8 p.m.

Crews brought in heavy equipment and blocked off the street while they also fixed the service line to one of the homes.
