HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

A water main break affected service to 29 multi-family homes on Brown Street in Hartford early Thursday morning. 

According to the Metropolitan District Commission (MDC), the 6-inch main was installed in 1891. 

Service was completely restored by 9:15 a.m., according to the MDC.

As a result of the work, Brown Street between Franklin Avenue and Wethersfield Avenue was closed. 

Another water main break was reported at 670 Hillside Ave. There was a leak in the pipe that caused a problem with service for one property.
