East Peoria Police and Fire spent about an hour Sunday night trying to find the source of a natural gas leak.

East Peoria police report getting numerous call from residents along Springfield Road.

Police say the smell of gas could be detected at the fire station on Mueller Road as well.

It was also detected outside the WEEK/WHOI studio in East Peoria.

The smell of natural gas dissipated around eight o'clock and crews were given the all clear.

Still no word on the location of the leak. East Peoria Police called the gas company to help investigate.
