With the smell of gas lingering more than a block, the Neligh Volunteer Fire Department was called Tuesday night to assist with a gas leak on the southeast side of town.
At the dead end of what would be H and First Street, the firefighters responded at about 7:15 p.m. to assist Black Hills Energy with the natural gas leak. No details have been released as to what caused the leak.
The Neligh Police Department was also on scene and traffic was stopped in a block radius of the leak.
No injuries have been reported, and no other information is available at this time.
