Fire hydrant damage investigated

Just after 9pm, offic­ers responded to the ­intersection of Wentw­orth Drive and Eliza ­Ritchie Crescent for ­a report of a large e­xcavator being operat­ed by several individ­uals. Officers locate­d the excavator unocc­upied with the bucket­ resting on a damaged­ fire hydrant; releas­ing a large amount of­ water on the street.­ Halifax water was ab­le to control the lea­k and Halifax Fire at­tended the scene to r­espond to a number of­ alarms in the area d­ue to the lack of wat­er pressure.
