Gas-leak drama outside La MaMa

Con Edison crews drilled holes and checked for gas leaks by the La MaMa theater on E. Fourth St. Tuesday morning after the smell of gas was reported emanating from a nearby manhole. Firefighters evacuated 15 people from the theater and closed the street to pedestrian and vehicle traffic for more than an hour. At left, a Con Ed worker took a reading in one of the holes while another worker drilled another hole.
