(KMOV) -- Water crews are on site and insurance adjusters are checking for damage after a water valve failed and sent a column of water into the air over on St. Louis County neighborhood.

The incident happened Monday afternoon near Parkway North High School in Creve Coeur.  At one point water was gushing 60 feet in the air.

Missouri American Water has shut down the valve and the leak and now has crews working at the site.

Officials say they have not received any reports of homes being damaged, although insurance adjusters are talking with home owners in the area just in case.

News 4 will have more at 5 p.m.
