    GOSHEN — NIPSCO was called to repair a gas line this morning, Oct. 3, after Elkhart County Highway Department workers caused a gas leak.

    The workers were replacing concrete in front of a home in the 20700 block of River’s Edge Drive when they hit a gas line with their backhoe, causing a leak, according to Ryan Rheinheimer, assistant fire chief for Elkhart Township Fire Department.

    No one in the neighborhood was evacuated, Rheinheimer said.

    The gas line was a supply line for a residence, he said.
