NILES, Ohio (WKBN) – Around 25 homes are without water Sunday morning after a water line break on Deforest Rd. SE.

The break happened around 8 a.m. Sunday and crews estimated the houses will not have water again until between 1 and 2 p.m.

Update: Niles has now issued a boil alert for Deforest Rd until further notice.
