Firefighters and the gas company were called to a gas line break at a house at 6723 Palatine Ave. N. this afternoon. From tipster Mike V:
When homeowner Frank Rebhan grabbed a gas line on the side of his house to steady himself, it tipped the meter, and when he tried to straighten it…the line broke. Fire trucks are still in the street as I send this. (Frank’s house was the one featured on the Home and Garden Network several years ago when he moved it to Palatine from a Phinney address.)
Thanks to Silver and Mike for the tips, and Mike for the photo!
