It could be a cold Christmas for more than 1,000 people in the Upper Peninsula.

A car hit a natural gas line Friday morning.

The car went of US 41 in Baraga County and hit a Semco Energy gas line near L’anse.

That started a fire at a utility substation.

The fire is now under control, but now about 1,200 customers could be without natural gas for up to three days.
