Gas leak causes closure of Cape Girardeau street

Tuesday, January 6, 2009

A minor gas leak at a private residence in the 700 block of North Pacific Street led to the area being closed to traffic temporarily Monday afternoon, according to the Cape Girardeau Fire Department.

The affected block was only closed for about five minutes around 3 p.m. and the closure was due to the number of emergency vehicles needing to get through rather than any danger from the leak itself, authorities said.
