(KSL News) -- A water-main break flooded an East Salt Lake City neighborhood today.

Fire officials say the break erupted underneath a driveway at 2940 E. Oakhurst Drive, causing the concrete to buckle and releasing gushing water into the street and into the home.

The basement of the home filled up with about an inch and a half of water causing an estimated 30-thousand dollars damage.

Another home received minimal amounts of water inside, but about a foot and a half of water in the backyard.

The cause of the break is unknown.
