A fire at an apartment complex in Phoenix led to a water main break early Saturday morning.

According to Phoenix Fire Department, crews arrived at the Woodbridge Apartment complex near 17th Avenue and Ocotillo Road at around 6 a.m. and found that the fire was isolated to just the laundry room.

Crews were able to extinguish the fire and no residents were displaced. Phoenix fire said that a water main broke while using the fire hydrant. Officials said this is actually common when using older fire hydrants.

The break in the water did not affect operations and Phoenix Water Department responded to the scene to address the issue.
