PORTLAND -- A water main break has shut down a portion of North Lombard Street at Reno in Portland.

The break was first reported as a sinkhole about 5:30 a.m.

Arriving Portland Fire Bureau crews instead found a bulge in the roadway, spewing water.

About 14 customers had water pressure reduced as repairs started. The pipe was to be replaced by about 3 p.m. and the road was reopened.
