A water main broke Thursday afternoon at a construction site in San Diego’s Morena neighborhood, prompting street closures and the evacuations of nearby businesses, authorities said.

The broken main was reported just after 3:45 p.m. in an industrial area near Sherman and Lovelock streets, west of Morena Boulevard and north of Friars Road, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

“This is a construction site and the water coming from the broken pipe is causing a sinkhole,” Fire-Rescue Department officials said in a statement.

Businesses in the area were being evacuated as of 4:20 p.m., according to the agency.

No homes or apartments were affected, according to the Fire-Rescue Department. Workers from the city’s Public Utilities Department were headed to the area to repair the pipe.

Arian Collins, a spokesperson for the Public Utilities Department, said a broken valve caused the issue. Collins said city crews were on site Thursday night working on repairs, but there was no information about how many customers were without water.
