Accident Creates Gas Leak


Germantown MD, Germantown News, Germantown Pulse

Montgomery County Fire units responded to a gas leak created after a car struck the Plum Gar Community Center at 19561 Scenery Drive in Germantown at about 2 am early Sunday morning, according to Pete Pringer, chief spokesman for the Montgomery County Fire & Rescue Service. The vehicle struck the building tearing the gas meter from its moorings and creating a natural gas leak, which forced the closure of Scenery Drive near Route 355.

Pringer reported via his Twitter account that the gas leak was brought under control by members of the Montgomery County Hazardous Materials Unit and a response team from Washington Gas within an hour. Units from MCPD were on scene to investigate the motor vehicle accident. Firefighters were checked the community center and homes near the incident. There were no reports of injuries.

Coincidently, the Plum Gar center was previously scheduled to be closed for regular maintenance beginning today, Sunday, Aug. 3 until Aug. 17, according to its website
