Crews are continuing to clean up debris and repair a sinkhole caused by a water main break early Wednesday morning in San Francisco's Inner Parkside neighborhood, a city Public Utilities Commission spokeswoman said.

According to SFPUC spokeswoman Betsy Rhodes, 15th Avenue from West Portal Avenue to Wawona Street will be closed today to finish repairs to the sinkhole in the street.

The sinkhole is a result of the 16-inch cast-iron water main that broke shortly after 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday at 15th Avenue, just south of Wawona Street.

The rupture sent a river of water and mud down the hill and damaged nearly two dozen homes and a dozen vehicles, SFPUC spokesman Tyrone Jue said.
