At approximately 1:30 this afternoon, a 16-inch water main broke near Fortland Ave. near the Willis-Knighton extended care center.
As a result of the break, 23 patients were evacuated.
Initially, the patients were moved to the upper floor of the center before being evactated.
Officials tell Fox 33 they are not sure when the patients will be returning, but they are working to shut water off and begin repairs.
Fox 33 will bring you more details tonight at nine.
