NORTH HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — A section of Elm Street in North Haven is closed off after reports of a gas leak Wednesday afternoon.

North Haven Police reported around 2:30 p.m., the incident involved an external gas leak on the side of the road near 101 Elm Street.

United Illuminating (UI) reported the leak was found during routine maintenance. “Our team uncovered a leak and immediately shut gas service down to approximately 57 customers.”

Repairs are in progress. UI said they expect to begin re-lighting individual customers within two hours. “Completing this process depends on our ability to reach each customer,” the utility company added.

Around 10:30 p.m., UI reported they were not able to connect with some of their business customers, but will turn their gas back on when they reopen Thursday. “Otherwise, back to normal,” UI said.
