CATSKILL — Reports of a natural gas leak brought Catskill Fire Company and Catskill Ambulance to Hop-O-Nose Housing and Apartments in the village Thursday morning.

Catskill police requested the fire company respond to the scene at about 9:21 a.m., after a strong odor of gas was noticed in the area of apartment No. 20.

Catskill firefighters arrived at the apartments and asked Central Hudson Gas & Electric crews to respond to the scene.

Firefighters used a gas detection meter to measure gas levels present in the area. The meter detects the presence of natural gas and carbon monoxide, Central Hudson spokesman John Maserjian said.

Central Hudson checked the area and found no evidence of leaking gas, Maserjian said. No injuries were reported.

Part of Greene Street was closed to traffic.
