Suffolk police blocked off New York Avenue between Gerard Street and Main Street in Huntington village this morning after fire crews responded to a gas leak at the Huntington Center for Performing Arts.

Cold Spring Harbor and Halesite fire departments responded with a total of two fire trucks and three chief vehicles. Suffolk police cars were also on-scene.

Justin Armbruster, Cold Spring Harbor fire chief, said the call went out at around 10:01 a.m.

When emergency personnel arrived at 310 New York Ave. they “evacuated the building because of heavy gas,” Armbruster said.

No one was injured and at around 10:50 a.m. Armbruster said emergency response personnel were almost finished “getting the gas out of the building.”
