MANKATO, MN -

 

Third Avenue north of Highway 14 in Mankato was closed for a short time this morning as law enforcement and fire crews responded to reports of a natural gas leak.

According to Becca Virden of CenterPoint Energy, it was not a leak, but a relief valve doing what it is designed to do...releasing excess pressure from the system.
Virden told KEYC News 12 that the situation was under control by 7 o'clock and service to customers was not affected.
