Dominion workers and a local firefighter stand near a reported gas leak on Ash Street in Celina on Tuesday. Although a strong smell of natural gas was detected at the scene, no one was evacuated from the residential and business neighborhood. A crew from the Celina City Water Department were attempting to help a resident with frozen water pipes when they struck the improperly marked gas line, said Mike Sudman, superintendent of the water department. The street reopened Wednesday.
