According to MFD officials, Madisonville City employees working in the area had accidentally dug into a natural gas line with a backhoe. Engine-15 arrived on scene and staged their apparatus at Hall Street. Engine-15 crew advised Engine-17 to approach the scene from McCoy Avenue. Atmos Energy was dispatched to the scene by F-1. Engine-15 crew checked the area where the backhoe had been digging up a concrete sidewalk and found a 2" natural gas line with a 2" X 1/16" cut with natural gas venting. The immediate area around the leak was blocked off.
