EAST CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Express Gas on Euclid Avenue remains closed Friday.

Firefighters in East Cleveland were called to Express Gas at 15400 Euclid Ave. around 2 p.m. Wednesday for reports of a gas leak.

The station was already closed down for a smell of gas the day before.

East Cleveland took soil samples and found traces of gas. They suspect the underground storage tanks are leaking.

The pipe has been capped and a private contractor is working with the owner on fixing the area.

No word yet on when the station will re-open.
