Natural gas leak closed in Priceville

A natural gas leak in Priceville forced residents inside this evening. Sirens went off in the area of the leak alerting residents to remain indoors. Residents within a 1-mile radius of the Wavaho gas station on Highway 67 were warned to stay indoors until another siren signaling an all-clear sounded around 9:30 p.m. We have a crew on the scene and will have a full report tonight at 10.
