Arlington Heights police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 3:48 PM Monday June 10, 2019 to a report of a gas leak on Patton Avenue just north of the intersection of Patton Avenue and Grove Street Arlington Heights, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that there was a gas odor and that a hissing sound was heard at the address of a one-story house in the neighborhood.
Wind observations from the Chicago National Weather Service at O’Hare were N 17 G 31 at 3:51 p.m. so gas odor would likely have been south of scene, pushing toward Grove Street.
Specific details about the leak were not initially available, but extra fire crews were released in a short time, leaving just the neighborhood’s “first due” crew of Tower 1 at the scene. The scene is apparently stabilized.
Nicor arrived within 30 minutes and repaired the problem by 4:31 p.m. All fire crews left the scene by 4:35 p.m.
