Source unknown for Indianapolis oil product leak

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Officials say they're trying to determine the source of a petroleum product leak in Indianapolis that they believe has come from an underground pipeline.

Authorities closed a street on the city's northwest side after emergency crews were called to the scene about 4 a.m. Thursday.

Pike Township Fire Department deputy chief Gerald George tells WISH-TV that the substance might be coming from pipelines that two oil companies have in the area.

No evacuations have been ordered and officials say tests found the substance wasn't flammable.

Citizens Energy Spokesman Dan Considine tells WRTV that workers were trying to prevent the leaked substance from reaching the city sewers.
