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.
