JASPER -- The gas is back on to a handful of Jasper residents today following a gas leak Monday near Jasper Lumber.
Officials with Jasper Gas & Water tell us Street Department crews were cleaning ditches in the area of 3rd Avenue when their equipment snagged the gas main, causing the leak.
A welder was brought in from Illinois to repair the broken main.
Less than a dozen customers were without gas for several hours Monday afternoon.
Areas impacted included homes and businesses along 3rd Avenue between Church Avenue and Meridian Road.
