APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - Fire crews were rushing to the downtown Appleton area Saturday night, but nobody was injured when a gas line was broken.
The Appleton Fire Department reports the gas pipe had broken off on the roof of the building in the 500 block of West College Avenue.
The alarm went out, but We Energies shut the gas meter off and repaired the break before the situation could get out of control.
Crews were said to be on the scene for about 90 minutes. It wasn’t known what might have caused the problem.
