WENATCHEE — A Dolco Packaging building at Ferry and South Columbia streets sustained minor water and mud damage about 11:30 a.m. Monday after a semitrailer knocked over a fire hydrant. The truck pulled part of the hydrant out of the street, which meant the normal shut-off system in the hydrant did not work, said Dan Frazier, director of public works operations. Also, because the shut-off valve to the pipes in that area were under water, city crews had to search farther out for shut-off valves. Frazier estimated that the water was shut off by about 2 p.m.
