Fargo's Sanford Health floods after water main breaks


FARGO -- A water main break Friday morning left a big mess at Sanford's Broadway Clinic in downtown Fargo.

The Fargo Fire Department responded to the break a little after 6 a.m. The water was shut off shortly after, but not before it flooded the tunnel between the clinic's two buildings and its lower level offices.

Several tons of debris and sand washed into the buildings, said Assistant Fire Chief Leroy Skarloken.
