SPOKANE, Wash. — A fire truck got stuck in a hole on the lower South Hill Thursday evening.

The truck got stuck at Ninth Avenue and Ivory. Neighbors say it appears the hole is a sinkhole.

Officials said the fire truck was sent to find a broken water main and the road collapsed beneath them. They say the pipe burst was not likely related to the storm. 

KREM 2's Casey Decker learned at least three basements had flooded so far.

The water main is shut off and a tow truck pulled out the fire truck. 

City water crews are on scene working to fix the break. 

This happened as a thunderstorm storm, dumping heavy rain, hit the area.

Heavy rainfall began in Spokane at about noon on Thursday. Spokane will see the heaviest rain between 5 - 7 p.m. during the evening commute.
