Local News

Dominion Energy repaired a one-inch service line that was ruptured Monday morning.

Trumbull Dispatch says workers hit the line around 9:30 a.m. on Folsom Street near Fairgreen Avenue in Trumbull County.

“Road department was working on a drainage line they’re replacing and hit the service line,” said Captain Tom Dempsy with the Champion Township fire department.

Crews had to close one lane of the road while repairing the line.

Firefighters say the Folsom Street Banquet Room was the only place that lost service.
