Salisbury firefighters checked out reports of a possible gas leak Tuesday afternoon.
A motorist passing the intersection of Jake Alexander Boulevard and Industrial Avenue reported smelling natural gas.
Firefighters checked the surrounding area including the Colonial gas pipeline that crosses the area.
Checking area businesses, staff in one reported a slight smell of gas Tuesday morning while another detected a gas odor Monday night.
