West Toledo strip mall evacuated for natural gas leak

A strip mall in the 5200 block of Monroe Street in West Toledo was evacuated Friday morning for about 90 minutes for a gas leak at one of the restaurants there, authorities said.

Fire crews arrived about 8:20 a.m., registered the smell of a natural gas additive, and evacuated the mall. There were no reported injuries.

Columbia Gas crews arrived about 8:40 a.m., located a gas leak inside the Basin Bar & Grill, and shut the service to the restaurant pending repairs.

The rest of the businesses resumed their normal functions about 9:50 a.m., utility spokesman Chris Kozak said.
