Fairfield home evacuated for fuel leak

A leaking propane fuel tank in the basement of a home at 797 High Street had to be removed by Fairfield firefighters on Friday morning, but evacuations of the surrounding area were not needed, officials said.

The leak was stopped, and firefighters emptied the tank by burning off the propane.

A section of High Street was closed for more than an hour while the leaking tank was made safe. The street reopened shortly after noon.
