DENVER — Denver Water crews are working on fixing a water main break that sent water shooting high into the air in a south Denver neighborhood Friday afternoon.

Denver Water said the pipe that broke was a 12-inch cast iron main laid some 50 years ago. Flow to the pipe has been cut off, and repairs are underway.
