READING, Pa. -

Some residents of Reading are being advised to boil their water before using it.

The advisory is the result of a 6-inch main that broke Friday morning in the 500 block of Oley Street.

Fourteen homes in the area were without water while crews made their repairs to the main. People living in those same homes are now advised to boil the water until further notice.
