Sheboygan Fire Department Deals with Gas Leak

The Sheboygan Fire Department responded to a reported natural gas leak just before 10:00am Wednesday morning. An underground line was struck by construction crews at a site near North 17th Street and St. Clair Avenue in Sheboygan. About ten homes in the immediate area were evacuated, and traffic access was limited. Firefighters worked with Wisconsin Public Service to shut off gas supply to the pipe – and gas company workers were able to crimp the damaged line closed. The scene was cleared around noon.
