Bourbon Gas Leak Creates A Scare

There was a leak in a Nipsco gas line Wednesday that was apparently caused by a Nipsco crew.

The crew was working to lower a gas line, as part of the reconstruction of east Center Street in Bourbon.

An employee was using a backhoe struck a four inch main causing a leak.

High winds spread the gas around town, creating enough concern to prompt an evacuation.

The problem was fixed in about an hour and a half's time.
