      Frozen ground causes gas leak in Ishpeming

      Scene of gas leak in Ishpeming

      Frozen ground is likely the cause of a gas leak in Ishpeming.

      SEMCO Energy responded to a home on Maurice Street earlier this week after receiving calls regarding the smell of gas in the area.

      According to SEMCO spokeswoman Michelle Levin, above ground lines have been created to alleviate the leak, which has since ceased. The underground leak was caused by the deep frost line from this winter, SEMCO reports.

      If you are in the area and notice the smell of gas, evacuate and call SEMCO's emergency number immediately at (888) 427-1427.
