MILLTOWN, IN (WAVE) - Customers in the Blue River Regional Water District are under a Boil Water Advisory until further notice.

Water officials say lightning struck a metal fence and traveled to the water pipes, causing damage.

Until the pipes can be repaired, residents are being asked to boil their water before drinking or cooking with it.
