FALLBROOK - Residents reported flooding at nearby homes after someone reportedly hit a fire hydrant around 9:45 p.m. Wednesday, July 17, and left the scene near the corner of Palomino and McDonald Roads in Fallbrook.

The broken hydrant sent thousands of gallons of water into the air and allegedly into the homes of a few nearby houses.

"I believe there were at least three homes damaged," said Jenny Bernier. "I feel so bad for these homeowners."

No further information was available. The Village News is attempting to confirm reports with law enforcement.
