Dominion East Ohio called to a gas leak on Carnegie Ave. June 14, 2011 at 11:48 AM EST - Updated June 24 at 9:25 AM Several blocks were shut down for a short time Tuesday morning due to a major gas leak in Cleveland. It happened around 8:30 AM at 6701 Carnegie Avenue. Officials say a back-hoe operator dug through a gas pipe at the mid-town tech park. The smell of natural gas was so strong at first, that firefighters considered evacuations. A Dominion East Ohio crew responded to the scene and quickly turned off the valve. Firefighters were also called as a precaution. There were no injuries. Copyright 2011 WOIO. All rights reserved.
