SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A big-rig collided with a fire hydrant on a downtown San Francisco street on Friday afternoon, sheering it from its base and sending a geyser of water four stories high.

The scene just outside of Yelp Inc.’s headquarters kept the city’s tech-savvy workers busy posting videos and photos of the drama outside their office windows.

Lisa Halsey, who works for the Trulia real-estate listing service, said she “heard something go pop” and rushed outside to see the water gushing. She was among those who captured the scene and posted it online.

KGO-TV reports the roads were reopened around 2:30 p.m., just after the water was shut off.
