SOS was alerted at 23:30 to an outdoor flood on Vretgatan. A considerable amount of water spilled onto the street near OKQ8 Kanalgatan.
The emergency services told Norran that they did not respond to the scene as it was outside. The leak was dealt with by the municipality.
One of Norran's readers caught the flood on camera.
– On my way home from work, you could see a cloud of steam from a long way off. As I got closer, you could see a large puddle of water, and it was incredibly warm! So much so that the ice and snow melted down to the asphalt, the person wrote in an e-mail.
The water stretched across the street and seemed to be coming from a pipe through an apartment building.
Skebo confirms that their emergency service received an alert and responded to the scene just before midnight.
– But it's not a leak on our property. A water pipe under the road, which belongs to the municipality, has broken, Skebo's customer and marketing manager Anna Ersson told Norran at 09:00 on Friday morning.
Skebo contacted Skellefteå municipality, who took care of the matter.
– I know they are working there now. The water is turned off in our buildings.
