DETROIT (WWJ) – The company that owns a pipeline that’s leaking gasoline in central Michigan is still searching for the source of the leak.

Ingham County Emergency officials say that Wolverine Pipeline Co. crews hope to find the leak within the next 24 hours and repair it. (Update: The origin of the leak was thought to be from Wolverine Pipeline, it was later discovered to be Marathon Oil).

The Portage-based company has contained the leak near a farm and a large gasoline storage tank facility about 55 miles west of metro Detroit.

Some of the gas flowed about a mile down an open drain by the time the leak was reported Wednesday by a farmer.
