ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) – A water main break in west St. Louis County sent water  gushing 30 feet into the air Tuesday afternoon.

The main burst at the Bennington Heights Apartments on Ardwick near the Page Avenue Extension.  Residents are reporting water inside some of the apartments.

The break happened after 10 a.m.  The shifting temperatures have been blamed for numerous water main breaks since last week’s heavy snow and frigid temps.
