By The Associated Press

Natural gas service has been restored to all but a few of the 1,200 customers in the Upper Peninsula who were affected by a gas line rupture last week in Baraga County.

 

L'ANSE, Mich. (AP) — Natural gas service has been restored to all but a few of the 1,200 customers in the Upper Peninsula who were affected by a gas line rupture last week in Baraga County.

SEMCO Energy crews are standing by if people need help lighting appliances again in the L'Anse area. Authorities say a sleepy driver struck a gas line Friday, causing a fire and explosion at a SEMCO property.

The majority of people regained service by Saturday night, in time for Christmas. Warming centers were set up at area schools and a bingo hall.
