According to Duson Police Chief Kip Judice, an operational issue has interrupted natural gas service to homes and businesses in Duson.
Judice said Center Point Energy is aware of the problem and is working on the issue. Once service is reinstated each meter will be manually turned back on.
The Duson Board of Aldermen, Mayor, Fire and Police Departments are monitoring the situation and there is no danger associated with this outage.
Residents can expect gas to be restored during the course of the night, but pilot lights may have to be re-lit after the service is restored.
