Gas Leak Fixed on Front Street in Washington

A gas leak on Front Street in Washington forced an evacuation and closure of section of Front, Elm, and Cedar Streets. The leak occurred when construction worked renovating the old Langenburg Hat Company in Washington struck a natural gas line at 8:45 Wednesday morning. Construction workers were evacuated from the area and nearby businesses and residents were checked for gas migration. Washington Firefighters were on site for just over an hour to mitigate the situation. With the situation resolved the construction workers have returned to work and all surrounding streets have reopened.  No injuries resulted from the leak.
