A suspicious gas leak prompts a late night for some firefighters.

Fire officials say it took crews some time to find the leak. The gas was seeping out near 21st and J streets.

The distinct smell spread through the entire neighborhood. "We smelled gas in so many areas because it got in to the storm sewer and natural gas is lighter than air, said Division Chief of Lincoln Fire and Rescue, Roger Bonin. "It kind of migrated up hill and to different places."

Black Hills Energy had to dig to get to the leaking pipe. They were able to repair the leak with a clamp around 1 Wednesday morning.

No one was evacuated. Fire officials say the leak never posed any danger for residents in the neighborhood.
