Fulton emergency responders briefly closed the 500 block of Market Street to traffic after receiving a call of a strong odor of gas in the area around 5 p.m. today.

Firefighters determined the source of the odor was a leak in a service line to Re/Max Select at 512 Market Street. Firefighters and city utility crews remained on scene to repair the leak and police re-opened the street within about five minutes, after the line was turned off.
