ARCHBALD — School officials think a lightning strike Wednesday night may have caused a gas leak in Lackawanna County.

Police, fire and ambulance crews were called out to Valley View High School in Archbald after 9 a.m. Thursday when a maintenance worker heard a hissing sound in the area of the sports complex.

UGI crews worked to find the break and shut off the gas valve.

The district believes lightning hit a pole and may have damaged the gas line.

The leak did not affect classes at the school.
