LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

A water main break is flooding homes in the same neighborhood where another water main break occurred less than a month ago

Two homes that flooded early Wednesday also flooded last month, Butler County officials said.

"Our home and cars (heater washer dryer water tank one week old) are flooded once again," one of the homeowners, Carla Mulcock, posted to FOX19 NOW's Facebook page.

"And still no resolution from Butler County from our last 50-60,000 loss. We are under water once again."

Crews responded to Kyles Station Road near Yankee Road after receiving reports overnight of water 2-3 feet deep in at least one of the basements, dispatchers said.

No injuries were reported.

Bob Leventry, director of Butler County's water and sewer department, told FOX19 NOW he is going to the neighborhood Wednesday morning.

He said the project is underway to replace the water main in that area.

County officials have been preparing the proposal to replace the whole line and were in the neighborhood Friday doing some site inspections, he said.

Wednesday's water main break occurred 100 feet from the one last month and flooded the same two homes, he said.

The county's insurance company has agreed to pay for the damages from both water main breaks, he said.

A dispute over who would pay for damages from the first water main break was recently resolved with the insurance company agreeing to pay, he added.

FOX19 NOW is at the scene and will continue to update this breaking story throughout the morning.
