Odor of Gas in Vacant House
Mon. Sep 17th 2012

DC911 dispatched a 1st alarm for a odor of gas in the structure at a vacant house off Cream Street earlier today. The apparatus dispatched to the scene were 63-11, 12, 13 & 15, 63-71, 63-51, Mutual Aid from Fairview FD with 41-45 and Mobile Life Support EMS. On arrival of apparatus and investigation of the call they found a faint odor on the B/C side of the house. Closer investigation initially revealed what may be a gas line that was disconnected from the incoming service, but later found that to be a vent line. Caller reported hearing a hissing sound in the basement around the furnace and there was a cut gas line found causing the gas to leak into the structure.

The residence was checked for LEL with very small levels found in the structure, ventilation was set-up to clear any residual from the odor from the structure. The equipment on scene was released with the exception of 63-12 and they secured the house after ventilation was completed.

Town of Hyde Park Police assisted on scene and took a report of the findings. The home is in a development of abandoned homes where the developer defaulted on the project and left the homes built vacant and property in legal battles. The homes have been vandalized and stripped of various items through the years since.
