Alliant Energy was on the scene working on a gas meter and piping when a valve allowed gas to escape, which set off a small fire involving the exterior of the house and nearby shrubbery. The fire also caused the power line to the home to be severed. Alliant Energy personnel extinguished the fire prior to our arrival.
