A boil order has been issued for the City of Edwardsburg Tuesday after a massive horse barn fire on Elkhart Road.Because fire crews had to pump so much water for the fire, the pumping station lost pressure.
People will need to boil drinking and cooking water for at least three minutes until further notice.
And now school has been cancelled for students in Edwardsburg Public Schools. The following was posted on their Facebook page:
"Due to the boil water order issued by the Village of Edwardsburg, and the Water Superintendent, there will be no school tomorrow, Wednesday November 12th."The city will be taking samples to ensure that there is no contamination before lifting the order.
Officials say at least 17 horses were killed in the fire earlier this evening. No people were injured. For more information click here: http://bit.ly/1ywcb78
