FERDINAND — Two occupants were treated on scene after a Saturday night report of a possible gas leak at a Ferdinand house configured into a duplex.
The 8:15 p.m. callout sent the Ferdinand Volunteer Fire Department to 1620 Main St. where authorities determined a stove knob left cracked open had released some natural gas, according to Fire Chief John Hoppenjans.
The fire department helped ventilate the house before leaving.
Three trucks and 12 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services, the Ferdinand Police Department and the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office assisted.
