Hempstead Drive is closed at Winton Road Friday due to a large water main break that was shooting water about 15 in the air.

Winton Road was briefly closed but is back open. 

Detour around the area by taking Compton Road to Daly Road, where you can pick Hempstead back up.

Springfield Township police said water was shooting 15 feet into the air when they responded just before 4:30 a.m. 

It's in between an Applebee's restaurant and an AT&T store, dispatchers said.

Greater Cincinnati Water Works was called to respond.

It's not clear when Hempstead will reopen or if businesses in the area have water damage.
