2 weeks, 4 days ago by Jim Dewey

A contractor struck the gas line behind a home

Marion County 911 sent emergency responders to 308 North 6th street in Hannibal at around three o'clock Thursday afternoon after a contractor struck a gas line in the alley behind the home.

Firefighters were joined at the scene by a crew from Liberty Utilities who were able to cap the leak within 20 minutes of the call.

Assistant Fire Chief Sean Hamilton said his department's job was to set up a perimeter and notify neighbors to eliminate any open flame sources that might have caused a problem.

Firefighters left the scene by 3:40 Thursday.
