Schaumburg police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 11:23 a.m. Tuesday to a report of a gas leak after a forklift hit an overhead, ceiling gas-powered heater in a warehouse at JIT Packaging, 1365 Mitchell Boulevard. Employees heard a hissing noise coming from a pipe connected to the ceiling heating unit and smelled gas from the unit, which was located in the northeast corner of the building.

Firefighters reported arriving at a single-story storage facility with nothing showing. Firefighters shut off the gas meter by about 11:31 a.m. Firefighters also found a second gas meter, which was also shut down. Firefighters inside reported that the shut offs stopped the gas leak and hissing inside the building. Circuit breakers to the gas heaters were also shut off.
