Emergency crews have been working for hours with a leaking 1,000 gallon propane tank in Potomac, Maryland.
Spokesman Pete Piringer said hazmat crews are performing a “flare-off” procedure, which requires burning the propane, to deal with the leaking gas. The tank is underground at a home in the 9800 block of Meriden Road.
Piringer said the leak was reported around 11:30 a.m. Saturday. At 7 a.m. Sunday, he said relief crews were on the way to take over monitoring the “flare-off.”
There are no reports of injuries. Some roads in the area are closed.
