Mishawaka families left with questions after losing heat

52 homes in a Mishawaka neighborhood are still without heat after a water main break repair led to an accidental break in a NIPSCO gas line.

That means some residents slept in below 50 degree temperatures.

A representative for NIPSCO said water made its way into the gas line. They have been working to clear water out of four sections of the line. Two are currently clear of water.

Once that's finished, they'll have to force air back into the lines and run tests.

One family said they wouldn't be able to sleep until the heat came back.

"I'm concerned right now," said Ron Church. "I'm not alarmed right now I'm just concerned. Hopefully we can get some communication."
