INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A water main break on the south side of Indianapolis prompted the closure of Epler Avenue Wednesday morning.

Citizens Energy officials said the closure was between Madison Avenue and Shelby Street, and it will likely be in place until noon or later Wednesday.

The break was caused by aging infrastructure, according to Citizens.

About 25 customers lost water for a couple hours, but water has been restored to the area.
