Palatine police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 8:44 AM Tuesday to a report of a gas leak at Walter R Sundling Jr High School,
1100 North Smith Street Palatine, Il. Firefighter/paramedics received a report that there was a natural gas leak on the roof with gas also leaking inside the school at Walter R Sundling Jr High School.
