    A broken sprinkler system at the top of an office building in San Francisco’s Financial District sent a plume of water pouring onto the street below on Friday morning.

    A broken valve was reported at 9:27 a.m. at the One Kearny building at Kearny and Market streets.

    Crews responded and found the malfunctioning sprinkler system on the top level of the 12-story building, fire officials said.

    No injuries were reported.

    The property manager of the building at 1 Kearny St. said she could not immediately comment on the incident.

    The manager at Hakkasan restaurant on the building's second floor said staff had seen the water falling, but said the flooding had not affected restaurant operations.

    Tyrone Jue, spokesman for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, said the leak did not appear to be connected to a city-owned water line.

    Crews were able to stop the flow of water by around 11 a.m.
