Gas Fires: Shut Off Gas at the Service Meter

You may need to shut off the gas supply to a fire downstream of a meter or appliance. Multiple overlapping streams can be used to allow access to the service meter shutoff valve or the appliance supply line shutoff valve without extinguishing the fire.

If you shut off a gas service meter, leave it off. Only LG&E and KU personnel can turn the gas back on.

In all cases, avoid spraying water at the point where natural gas is being released. Do not spray water into gas lines, and do not fill excavations with water.
