Sunday Morning, Concordville Fire Company was dispatched to a local manufacturing business for a reported outside Propane leak. Crews arrived to find a broken fill nozzle with an unrestricted flow of Propane. The business's management team had already evacuated the building before the Fire Department's arrival. The Engine crew isolated the area, closing access from three directions to ensure no one was entering the propane cloud. Utilizing self-contained breathing equipment, the crew entered the tank area and were able to close all valves to the tanks to stop the leak.
