No Gas Leak at Hartford Public Safety Complex: Cops

Emergency crews responded to the public safety complex on High Street in Hartford after a gas odor was reported in the building Friday afternoon.

The complex is down the street from a historic structure ravaged by fire Thursday morning and currently undergoing demolition.

Hartford police said crews searched the building and did not find a gas leak. No one was evacuated from the building and the emergency response is wrapping up.

It comes as demolition gets underway on a historic building at 1363 Main Street, which went up in flames Thursday morning and was all but destroyed. Officials deemed the building structurally unsound and began tearing it down Friday.

The public safety complex at 253 High Street is right around the corner from the building being demolished.
