Minor gas leak due to tree collapsing

EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WWLP) – The high winds toppled a tree in  East Longmeadow this afternoon, causing a small natural gas leak, and taking down a power line.

East Longmeadow Police Sgt Jeffrey Dalessio told 22News the big tree ruptured the pipe to a gas meter on the house at the corner of Alvin and Fairview Streets around three this afternoon.

Columbia gas crews fixed the broken meter. No one was hurt.
