Maui police temporarily closed Wākea Avenue at Kamehameha Avenue near Hale Mahaolu in Kahului on Friday morning due to a ruptured fire hydrant.

The incident was reported at around 11:30 a.m.

Polices say the hydrant broke when a vehicle collided into it, causing the area to flood.  Water was traveled down the road and was observed as far away as the Kahului Library.
