Gas Leak at Wausau's Athletic Park

It's all safe again at Wausau's Athletic Park. A little before 5 this afternoon fire crews were called to the park with the report of a gas leak.

A Wisconsin Public Service worker told Newschannel 7 someone called 9-1-1 because he thought a gas line was punctured. He also reported hearing the stuff "gushing" out.

Turns out crew workers hit a two inch gas main. WPS rushed to the scene and shut the gas line off. Luckily no one was hurt, and no evacuations were needed.

However, two customers went without gas services for an hour.
