The gas line was not on underground utility records
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
Thursday Albany firefighters and gas crews were called to a Northwest Albany gas leak.
About 9:45 a crew installing a septic field behind a house on Nancy Drive hit an abandoned, buried propane tank with their backhoe.
Some gas leaked, so first responders were called.
Ross Septic Solutions owner Tommy Ross said "It could have been a dangerous situation. But we got away from it and we called all the proper people. And of course we had a utility locator as we always do. So they came out here, plugged it, and it's taken care of."
