LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Firefighters and utility crews spent several hours checking homes in a southern Louisville Metro neighborhood after a leak allowed natural gas to get inside.
Firefighters were called to the corner of Locust Way and Maple Way around Noon Saturday. According to Chief Rich Carlson of the Okolona Fire Protection District, the natural gas line that leaked was under the roadway and the break allowed to gas to seep into a sewer line giving it a path into the homes.
There was no construction taking place in the area at the time. Carlson said the cause of the break appears to be from the movement of the ground.
Carlson told WAVE 3 the initial area of concern was roughly the size of a football field. Firefighters made contact with residents of 20 homes to check for high levels of natural gas.
LG&E crews were able to locate and isolate the break around 3:30 p.m. No injuries were reported.
Fire and utility crews remained on the scene into the early evening.
