Workers repair a water main break on Grant Avenue in Millvale on Friday, Nov. 21, 2014.

A water main break in Millvale early Friday left the entire town without water for several hours.

The break happened on Grant Avenue around 1:30 a.m. As of 5:30 a.m., water service was restored to all but 10 customers.

“The whole town was without, but luckily it was in the middle of the night and didn’t affect most of the residents. We adjusted our fire assignment to cover for the time being,” said Millvale fire chief Jim Tunstall.

Several apartments were damaged when water got into their basements.

Grant Avenue is expected to be closed for most of Friday while crews work to repair the break.
