BOULDER, Colo. -- A water main break sent thousands of gallons of water crashing down on one woman's house.

Homeowner Emily Wolf has a house full of rescue dogs and cats. She is the founder for Summit Dog Rescue. When the water main broke, she took her four dogs and two cats out to her car, sitting with them with the air conditioning on.

"I looked up and I saw rocks coming over the house towards me, hundreds of rocks -- I thought they were hail," said Wolf.

One of the dogs, who was rescued just recently, just had surgery, according to a friend.

Crews took about an hour to finish repairs to the water main break, but a large portion of north Boulder remained without water for much of the evening.
