Fire hydrant bursts in Pearl City, disrupts traffic

PEARL CITY, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A fire hydrant burst in Pearl City early Thursday, forcing crews to temporarily close down all westbound lanes of Kamehameha Highway.

According to police, the hydrant broke at around 4:30 a.m.

Crews shut down Kamehameha Highway between Puu Momi Street and Waimano Home Road, but they reopened the lanes after fire officials shut off the water about a half hour later.
