Streator Fire Department

A major gas leak on the east end of Streator has led to traffic being diverted off of Route 18.

At around 10:30 Wednesday morning Streator firefighters were called to the 2000 block of East Main Street for the report of a gas leak.  Crews working in the area hit a 4-inch gas line.  Nicor was immediately contacted to help.

Off-duty Streator firefighters were called in to assist with any other calls while others handled the leak.  Traffic on Route 18 was still closed into the noon hour.
