KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A water main break sent water gushing into the streets of South Knoxville Thursday morning.

The Knoxville Utilities Board says it happened around 5:45 a.m. on Druid Drive and Chapman Highway.

Crews valved the break by 6:15 a.m., and KUB says a salt truck is being sent to the area to prevent ice from forming on the roads.

Officials say there is some damage to Glenhurst Road, but traffic on Chapman Highway will not be affected.

KUB says the break should be fixed sometime Thursday morning.
