MANSFIELD, Ohio (WMCH) — Approximately 1,000 people are without gas after a leak was discovered in Mansfield Saturday.
According to Columbia Gas, a mechanical failure led to a gas leak near Route 42 and Hanley Road near the Town Border station, which is where the company receives its gas supply before it is distributed.
In order to make the necessary repairs, about 1,000 customers will be without gas.
There is no timeline for when the service will be restored.
Columbia Gas officials will visit all of the properties affected and turn off the gas at the meter. Once repairs are complete, the company will turn the gas back on.
