Crews had a soggy mess to clear after a car hit a fire hydrant on King St. causing water to shoot dozens of feet into the air.
It happened just after 5 p.m. near Punchbowl St., fronting Kawaiahao Church across the street from Honolulu Hale.
The Honolulu Fire Dept. shut off the water at around 5:25 p.m., but the incident caused traffic to back up all along King St.
No major injuries were reported.
