A fire hydrant was struck by a semi-truck Monday morning causing flooding on Phoenix streets.

The broken fire hydrant flooded streets near 27th Avenue and Buckeye Road.

Phoenix city workers arrived in the area just after 9 a.m. and began working to repair the broken fire hydrant.

Both westbound lanes on Buckeye Road were closed, with one westbound lane in the double yellow remaining open for traffic.

The closure remained in place for evening rush hour but has since been reopened and the water has been shut off.
