CALDWELL - A road collapse in Canyon County caused irrigation water to back up, and flooded a neighborhood early Sunday morning, officials said.
It happened at about 3 a.m. near the intersection of Midway Road and Jerry Lee Lane. The Canyon County Sheriff's Office says a section of Midway Road collapsed and fell into an underground culvert, blocking the water flow.
Water then backed up and reached nearby homes. Fire officials said the water was about a foot deep at one point.

The cause of the road collapse is not known at this time.
Midway Road is closed between Moss Lane and Homedale Road while crews work to repair the damage.
