Gas leak at Rawley Point Lighthouse sends two people to hospital

by

TWO RIVERS, WI (WTAQ) - Two people were hospitalized after a gas leak at the Rawley Point Lighthouse north of Two Rivers.

Guests renting out the lighthouse called authorities around 11:30 a.m. Saturday after smelling the odor of gas. Crews responded and found the two victims sickened by the odor.

Upon inspection, crews found a 1,000-gallon liquid natural gas tanked lost nearly all of its gas into the lighthouse.

No word yet on what caused the leak.

The lighthouse is routinely rented out to members of the Coast Guard.
