  • Gas Main Ruptured In Rice Lake Nobody was injured yesterday when a natural gas main was ruptured in Rice Lake.  It happened just after 430pm when a contractor working on part of the Knapp Street construction project, struck the line at the intersection of Nunn and West Knapp Street.  The gas leaked from a very large main and lasted about one hour.  Those living close to the leak were instructed to close their windows and shelter in place while utility crews worked to shut off the gas supply.  Traffic was detoured away from the scene during the busy rush hour, and gas customers in the neighborhood were without service while repairs were made.
