MORNING BRIEFING: Arrest made in young Philly doctor's killing

A.P. briefs from around the state

(Continued)

PHILADELPHIA —

UGI said late Wednesday night that it was in the final stages of trying to restore service to about 1,000 homes in Coplay and North Whitehall. Officials say that in order to restore service they had to turn off natural gas service at each individual home.

UGI spokesman Joe Swope said service had been restored to about half the affected customers by 7 a.m. Thursday. He says the utility hopes to have the rest back later in the morning.

The American Red Cross has also set up a shelter in the area. It's expected to be open until around midday Thursday.
