An 8-inch water main break forced the closure of the intersection of Frankford Avenue and Girard Avenue in the Fishtown section of Philadelphia.

The water main break was first reported around 1:00 a.m. Sunday and sent water cascading into the basement of Johnny Brenda's Bar & Restaurant, forcing them to evacuate the building.

Water company crews soon arrived and shut down the main.

There is no word yet on what caused the main break.
