Crete, IL – Gas Odor in South Suburbs Due to Indiana Pipe System Venting


Share post:

Crete, IL – The persistent odor of natural gas reported Thursday night in south suburbs and northwest Indiana has been linked to venting of a pipe system in Indiana, according to Nicor Gas. 

While the outdoor odor is not deemed a public risk, fire officials caution that if residents suspect a gas leak, they should not operate light switches, use open flames, smoke or vape, turn appliances on or off, attempt to locate the source of the odor, or start vehicles. These actions are critical to avoid creating potential ignition sources during this time.
