STRATFORD -

A car crash knocked out a fire hydrant, which flooded a home in Stratford.

The incident happened Thursday on Main Street next to a Merritt Parkway off-ramp.

The assistant fire chief says two cars crashed, and then hit a water hydrant which caused an underground pipe to leak.

Water traveled to the end of Charlotte Street and flooded a home’s garage and basement.

He says there was only minor flooding inside the home. 

Homes on the street were without water last night.

At least one person was suffered non-life threatening injuries as a result of the crash and was taken to hospital, officials say.
