A second propane tank leak in less than a week occurred in Broad Channel on West 12 Road. Witnesses say that the Broad Channel Volunteer Fire Department responded within minutes to close the street and apply water to the leaking tank. Pedestrians and all vehicular traffic were closed out while a safety area was cordoned off. Residents were urged to stay indoors while the propane tank was emptied completely. Residents often use propane tanks due to the absence of gas lines in Broad Channel. Photo by Amy Katherine Mahon.
