Trouble averted as gas leaks at E. Toledo home


A natural gas leak in front of an East Toledo house yesterday was repaired within two hours.

All American Construction & Plumbing was digging in the front yard of 2229 Genesee St. when it struck a two-inch Columbia Gas of Ohio line.

Though gas was escaping from the line, it posed no threat to nearby houses even if it had caught fire, officials said.

Columbia Gas arrived at noon, and the line was patched at 1:15 p.m.
