ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

Crews were out on Christmas repairing a broken water main in Allentown.

Fourteen homes are affected by the break in the 2600 and 2700 blocks of Highland street.  That's near Ott Street on the city's west end.

Officials said the main was repaired and back in operation at 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Crews on scene tell us it is not necessary for the affected residents to boil their water.

There is no word on what caused the break.
