DALLAS — City officials say a water main break has been fixed 12 hours after it was first reported.

Authorities first reported on the break at about 6:15 p.m. Saturday on Hollywood Avenue in the Oak Cliff area.

They say up to five homes were flooded as a result. A source living by the main break tells WFAA that there was water running down the streets and filling up neighbors' yards.

By 8:45 p.m., a representative for the City of Dallas told WFAA there were two crews fixing a 16-inch water main break. An official later said it was fixed by 8:20 a.m. Sunday morning.

There's currently no information on what caused the main break. City officials said no one was displaced from their home and no one was out of water.
