Fishtown in Leland being evacuated due to natural gas leak

Leland's historic Fishtown is being evacuated after construction crews hit a natural gas line.
The construction crew is working in the parking lot near the marina. The Sheriff reports the crew was working to set up for a wine festival this weekend when a tent stake struck the line.
DTE Energy crews are on the scene digging to reach the main line to shut it off.
Witnesses on the scene report a very strong smell of gas.
Details are limited at this time, but we have a crew on the scene and will update with details as they become available.
