A propane leak near the UVa observatory temporarily closed parts of McCormick Road today.

Fire officials responded to the Alden house on McCormick road just before noon. The leak came from a furnace in the basement.

Officials treated the leak before it became explosive. Luckily, the house is abandoned, so no one was injured.
