On Tuesday morning, 227 & 221 were alerted for a utility company that hit a gas line with a hydraulic auger and had an active gas leak. 227RQ arrived on scene with an active gas leak. The gas company arrived a short time later, and after a lot of reviewing it was discovered that the leaking line was a 12” gas transmission line that was pressurized at 110psi. Fire units remained on scene for 5 hours while crews slowly depressurized the line. The roadway will remain closed for late evening.
