Our dept. was dispatched shortly after 1 a.m. this morning for a reported gas leak on Harbor Rd near Pine Harbor Bar. Engine 1 arrived on scene to find the natural gas line supplying the house was broken off below the meter. An individual possibly under the influence had been making a few laps around the house with a snowmobile striking the gas meter. Unfortunately the gas line was broke under the shutoff not allowing us to shut it off. WPS crews arrived and were able to use a tool to shut off the gas and also electric to the house. Firefighters ventilated the gas from the house before power was then restored.
Rescue 1, Tanker 1, Tanker 2, Oneida Cty Ambulance and Sheriff’s dept. also responded to this call. Firefighters were on scene for an hour in half.
