(KMOV) – A fire hydrant malfunction created quite the obstacle for drivers traveling in south St. Louis for their morning commute on Tuesday.

A geyser of water started spewing over S. Grand at Fairview beginning around 5 a.m. due to an unexplained issue.

Officials said they were having trouble turning the water off and hoped to have the hydrant fix by later Tuesday morning.

Several drivers in the area seemed unfazed, though, as they drove right through the hazard.
