Overturned Gasoline Truck Floods Sewer Lines

Texaco gasoline truck overturned on the outskirts of town at 48th St and Correctionville Road. Gas floods sewer lines for two blocks around, also on streets and ditches. Situation is serious for two or more hours until gas gets flushed away. In the meantime, cars are rerouted through side streets.

Fire Chief Charles Hochandel says: “The fireman followed catastrophe and hazmat procedures set up beforehand for such an occurrence.” Four families were evacuated because of sewer-line gas. No reported casualties. Situation is under control.
