There was a close call over in the Village of Long Reach yesterday. According to a neighbor, someone left a gas burner on the stove in a vacant townhouse at 5804 Alderleaf Place in the Heritage Walk community. It may have been on for some time. You could easily smell the gas out on the street and around the neighborhood. This could have ended very badly. According to one bystander the home had been empty for a month.
