Gas leak evacuates Old Bag Factory in Goshen

Posted:
A Friday morning gas leak in Goshen forced one business to evacuate and road to be closed.

Dispatchers received calls of a leak at the intersection of Chicago Ave. and Harrison St. shortly after 9:30am. The nearby Old Bag Factory had to be temporarily evacuated and Chicago Ave. was closed at the intersection.

Our crew at the scene reported that fire crews had departed by noon, but that Chicago Ave. remained closed. As of 2:00pm, dispatchers reported NIPSCO crews were on the scene, but could not be sure when Chicago Ave. would reopen due to construction in the area.
