Gas Leak Forces Evacuations


By Kevin O’Rourke

About forty people were forced to evacuate their homes for about an hour Monday night, because of a natural gas leak.

Pete Piringer, public information officer for the Montgomery County Fire & Rescue Service said that MCFRS crews were called to the 19500 block of Gunners Branch Road to deal with a Hazardous Materials incident after a large tree branch fell onto a commercial gas meter causing a high pressure natural gas leak at about 7:35 pm Monday night.
