SAN DIEGO — A car knocked over a fire hydrant Wednesday, sending a geyser of water about 50 feet in the air.

The accident happened at about 1 p.m. at the Frost Lumber Company on Miramar Road at Frost Place, just north of the Miramar Marine air base.

The water gushed skyward for about an hour until a crew from the Water Department arrived at about 2 p.m.

No injuries were reported.
