Repairs continue on Whildin Street water main Chuck Samples/KVOE News

Emporia’s Underground Utilities Department has to do extra work to fix a broken water main.

The 10-inch main in the 700 block of Whildin failed Thursday. Water was rushing north towards Ninth as Emporia Fire battled a house fire near Goura and Corinth, a block to the west, starting around 10 am.

A repair crew fixed the initial leak, but a valve later failed. It may take until Thursday night for the situation to be fully resolved.
