PLYMOUTH â€” Staff at Michiana Behavorial Health Center decided to evacuate the building early Wednesday morning when a gas leak was suspected. They turned off the gas to the building and called NIPSCO and the Plymouth Fire Department. Fire personnel and NIPSCO arrived at the scene around the same time, but it is unclear if a gas leak actually occurred.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Plymouth Fire Department was called to a house fire at 407 Miner Street Tuesday evening, just before 7 p.m. Fire chief Andy Metsker reported later that the accidental fire caused damage to an upstairs bedroom and the roof above it.
