Gas leak in Peru causes evacuations

Posted by wlpo on February 16, 2016

A couple homes not far from the Peru Fire Station were evacuated Tuesday morning after a gas leak.

Firefighters were called to 5th and Grant Streets just before 11 o’clock after an outside contractor was digging and hit a gas line. The crews were working on a sewer line repair.

Just to be safe, a couple homes closest to the leak were evacuated. They were let back in their home at around noon.

Ameren crews hung around the scene after firefighters left.
