At least four Park City homes and businesses flooded overnight after a water main break.

Park City Fire District told 2News a valve failed near Park Avenue and 5th Street.

Crews weren't able to shut off the water for three hours.

Sand bags were brought to the scene to help guide the water away from buildings and homes.

The road was paved Thursday, which stalled crews' efforts to get to the broken valve.

Water has since been restored to the area and debris has been cleared.

Crews will assess the valve and area before anymore digging will happen.

The McMillen art Gallery was damaged by the water. Other businesses may report damage on Friday morning, according to Park City police.

Trappers and parts of Park Avenue will be closed until the water main and roadways are fixed.
