Massive Gas Leak in Wilkes-Barre

WILKES-BARRE -- Gas contractors spent Friday night trying to fix a gas leak in Luzerne County.

According to police, crews were working on a project on Spring Street in Wilkes-Barre around 9 p.m. Friday night when a valve broke causing a massive leak.

Spring Street and many other nearby roads were closed while crews worked to shut off the gas.

Police and fire crews on scene tell WNEP-TV the general public is safe but four co-workers were affected by the fumes. Two of those workers were transported to the hospital following the incident in Luzerne County.

    The first sentence and the last sentence both say “in Luzerne County”. Does the author work for the Department of Redundancy Department? Why is it even necessary to mention the county if you say the story takes place in Wilkes-Barre? We can do better folks.
