Another broken hydrant floods Fresno streets (video)

For the second time in a week, a ruptured fire hydrant flooded a street in drought-parched Fresno.

The hydrant was apparently broken by weed-trimming equipment Thursday afternoon at a vacant lot near Herndon Avenue and Fresno Street, a Fresno firefighter said.

It took about 15 minutes to bring the geyser under control because city workers with special equipment had to be called in.

On Monday, a trash-hauling truck broke a hydrant near Belmont Avenue and Fresno Street.
