MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Va. (WDBJ) - Multiple units responded to a gas leak at a Montgomery County wastewater facility gas leak.

High levels of explosive gas were found within one of the buildings. The crews are working to mitigate potential hazards and determine the cause of the gas buildup.

Dispatch calls went out at around 4:15 p.m. Saturday. A Riner Volunteer Fire Department engine is on-site at the Christiansburg Fire Department to help with calls in either area due to the extended periods crews have been at the scene.
