PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Philadelphia firehouse and a dialysis clinic have been flooded by a water main break.

The line broke about 4 a.m. on Market Street between 42nd and 43rd streets.

The water has flooded the basement of the Engine 5/Ladder 6 firehouse. About five feet of water were reported in the basement.

A nearby dialysis clinic is also being affected.

Fire department officials say the flooded station remains open and the firefighters there are still on duty.
