Crews cleaning up gas leak in Mingo County, WV

Crews are working to clean up a gas spill in Mingo County.

DEP spokeswoman Kathy Cosco says the gas was released from a drip tank which is associated with a pipeline.

About 15 barrels of gas was released.

Some of that got into a creek called Paw Paw Branch and Laurel Lake, which is near Lenore.

Petroleum Development Corporation owns the drip tank and they have crews on the scene working to clean up the spill.

At this point in time the leak has been stopped.
