BELLE ROSE- An abandoned well may be the cause of a mysterious gas leak that's bubbling at the top of Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou, according to parish officials.

The Department of Natural Resources is investigating an orphaned well 1,000 feet from the main bubbling area in the Bayou Corne, and parish emergency officials said it may well be the source of the bubbling.

News 2's Adrian Pittman gets answers tonight at 6 on the investigation and what could be done to stop the bubbles.
