Ridgewood NJ, A large tree limb fell onto a passenger car in front of 51 Leroy Place, Ridgewood during a Saturday, 08/05 overnight storm. Telephone, cable, and internet service to a home was severed in the incident. The responding Ridgewood PD uniformed patrol officer detected a natural gas smell in the vicinity of the fallen limb and requested Ridgewood Fire Department be dispatched to investigate. Elevated natural gas readings were isolated to a nearby manhole by Ridgewood Fire Department Engine Company #35 members. PSE&G’s Gas Division was requested to respond. Fire Department personnel also secured the downed FIOS wire.
