Crews from Xcel Energy, Hudson Police, Hudson Fire and St. Croix EMS responded to a simulated gas leak at 1327 Frear St. Tuesday morning. The home is owned by Gordon Anderson, a retired Xcel (Northern States Power) executive. The drill lasted about two hours and gave officials an opportunity to practice policies and procedures in the event an actual emergency were to occur.
