GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Problems with DTE Energy gas lines in Kent County have been fixed, according to DTE spokesman Roger Royer.
Air in the gas lines caused a loss of natural gas service in Grand Rapids and Walker on Monday. Several thousand homes and businesses were potentially affected by the problem, said DTE.
All service should be restored now.
150 DTE employees are going door-to-door to check appliances of those in the problem area.
Employees will work through Tuesday evening to ensure that all customers' appliances are working properly, including stoves, ovens and water heaters. They will also check that pilot lights are lit and there are no safety concerns.
DTE reminds customers that their vehicles are clearly marked and all staff members have company ID.
Anyone still experiencing a loss of natural gas service should call DTE at 1.800.477.4747.
Starting at about 10 a.m. on Monday, the company received calls from about 120 customers in the area claiming that they did not have natural gas.
There is no gas leak, so the public is not in danger.
