No one hurt in gas leak in Sidney Monday morning

Gas line reportedly struck by workers at home on Shoreacres Road

No one was injured Monday morning when workers reportedly struck a gas line at a home on Shoreacres Road in Sidney.

Sidney Fire responded to the incident and checked nearby homes. Fire Chief Brett Mikkelsen said landscapers hit the line in front of a home’s garage while doing some work. No one was home at that house at the time and Mikkelsen said only a couple of nearby houses were occupied at the time. Residents were asked to evacuate their houses as a precaution.

Fortis Gas was called and responded quickly to shut off the gas, to facilitate repairs to the line.
