Fence repair sparks gas leak in Wausau


A man repairing a fence caused a gas leak in Wausau Wednesday afternoon.

It happened on the corner of Fulton and 3rd Street. Firefighters say a man putting in a new fence post hit a gas line with his machine. It was a low-flow commercial gas line without much pressure.

Wisconsin Public Service arrived to shut off the gas and repair the leak.

Firefighters say this is a reminder to call Digger's Hotline if you're going to dig anywhere. That number is 811 or 1-800-242-8511.
