Busted main sends water gushing high into air near Nebraska Furniture Mart

KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Water was gushing about 30 feet into the air Tuesday morning outside of Nebraska Furniture Mart in Kansas City, Kan.

A water main apparently broke on Prairie Crossing, between Parallel and Village West parkways on the western side of the giant furniture store.

It wasn't immediately clear what caused the water main to burst or if any nearby businesses were affected.

The KCK Board of Public Utilities was looking into the break.

The gushing water was first reported around 5:30 a.m. The water was shut off by about 6:15 a.m.
