MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (UPI) -- Fire officials in an Ohio city said a man sparring with a punching bag inadvertently caused a natural gas leak when he knocked the meter off his wall.

Middletown Fire Department officials said they responded to Jackson and Midway streets Tuesday and began evacuating the surrounding homes, while one of the two men inside the house at the time of the leak was taken to Atrium Medical Center complaining of nausea, the Middleton Journal reported.

"This was an extremely dangerous situation because this house could have easily blown up and at least three or four houses nearby could have suffered significant damage," Deputy Fire Chief Tom Snively said.

Snively said Duke Energy crews were able to shut the gas off about an hour after the leak began, and residents were allowed to re-enter their homes at about 8 p.m.
