Ruptured sewer line floods Hamvention flea market

DAYTON — Shoppers and vendors in a section of a flea market outside Hara Arena were forced to move Saturday when sewage from a ruptured line bubbled to the surface, officials said.

“They had a crew out to clean it up pretty quickly,” said Henry Ruminski, spokesman for Hamvention, an annual gathering of amateur radio enthusiasts. By 3 p.m., trucks were pumping off the sewage and vendors relocated elsewhere in the lot, Ruminski said.

“Business went on as usual, other than for the people that had to move,” he said.

The event, which draws up to 20,000 amateur radio operators, continues through Sunday.
