A broken fire hydrant created a soggy mess near Ala Moana Center Thursday afternoon.

The incident was first reported at around 2:30 p.m. on Kapiolani Blvd. near Keeaumoku St.

Water shot up several stories in the air before firefighters shut it off.

Honolulu police blocked the Ewa-bound lanes of Kapiolani Blvd. briefly while crews cleared the mess.
