HUDSON — A strong odor of natural gas brought Hudson firefighters to the intersection of Warren Street and Worth Avenue on Wednesday morning, Hudson Fire Chief Anthony Demarco said.
At about 10:25 a.m., Columbia County 911 sent Hudson Fire Company to 2 Worth Ave., for a reported odor of natural gas.
Fire trucks blocked Prospect Avenue while firefighters went door to door with gas meters.
No gas levels were found in the buildings, Demarco said.
The odor was traced to an area in front of 20 Worth Ave., where contractors were digging in the street.
The contractors removed an old gas line that contained residual gas inside, Demarco said.
National Grid was also requested to the scene. The fire department was back in service at 10:56 a.m.
