Warhol moment averted

It's not often that my neighbourhood makes the news, but it did so today. As Adelaide Now reports:

Fast-acting emergency services averted a potential disaster in the eastern suburbs this morning, after a high pressure gas main was ruptured by workmen causing a major leak...
Roads around the leak - near the corner of Portrush and Beulah roads at Norwood - were closed as emergency services were called to the scene.

Fortunately normal services were restored very swiftly. In fact I didn't notice anything amiss: the first I heard of the problem was on ABC Radio News. If there'd been an explosion I suppose I'd have had my 15 minutes of flame.
