Upper Campus Propane Leak Contained

Upper Campus Propane Leak Contained

Two Upper Campus residence halls were evacuated briefly on Feb. 7 when a propane gas tank began leaking while it was being filled.

Students from Williams and Welch halls were escorted to McElroy Commons while Boston College Police and Newton Fire Department personnel worked to bring the situation under control. Two workers reported minor injuries, and were treated and released. The residence halls were reopened less than two hours later.
