On Thanksgiving evening at 6:10 PM, KVFD was dispatched to investigate a gas leak in the 3500 block of Cemetary Road. The caller reported that they live next to an Eastern Shore natural gas line and there was a strong odor of gas outside.

Assistant Chief Klingler arrived and confirmed that there was an active release from the pipeline. County Radio notified the Eastern Shore pipeline and they dispatched a crew to assist. Firefighters stood-by and monitored with gas monitors while fire police shutdown Cemetary Road and Strasburg Road between Lenover Hill Road and N. Limestone Road. A "Shelter in Place" advisory was sent via Reverse 9-1-1 to all homes in the area.

Ass't Chief Klingler advised that the natural gas is less dense than air and is therefore rising.

At 7:17 PM he advised that product is still being released but the air quality is good. The wind is helping to dissipate the gas.

At 8:05 PM, Ass’t Chief Klingler reports the that the leak has been stopped - area is safe.

Units: Ass't 8, Engine 8, Rescue 8, Squad 8, Ambulance 8-2, and multiple fire police units.
 
Mutual Aid: Fire police from Christiana Fire Co., Lancaster County

Did you get a Reverse 9-1-1 call? Also the firefighters were closely monitoring the situation and would have gone to any location with an immediate hazard.
