(KMOV.com) -- Crews are working to contain a water main break in northwest St. Louis County that has shut down part of the road.
Water can be seen shooting as high as 40 feet in the air at Rider Trail North and Green Ash Drive in Earth City.
Authorities said the water is making it difficult for employees to get to work. UPS is the biggest employer in the area, but said they still have water.
The break happened before 9 p.m. Thursday night.
It is unclear how the break occurred.
