Work crews hit natural gas line

Spokane Valley Fire Department crews are responding to a call for a broken natural gas line at Montgomery and Van Marter. There has been utility work going on in the area and apparently a backhoe hit the gas line.

1 p.m. update: A one inch line has been broken. Traffic is being rerouted around the area until Avista crews can get the break fixed.

Accident at University and Maxwell

An accident at University and Maxwell is blocking traffic. Emergency crews are arriving and report that a residential gas line has been severed. Detours are being set up.

Oops. Wrong pipe.

Scanner traffic says that a sewer installation crew on Boone Avenue between Greenacres Road and Long Road has accidentally severed a 2-inch natural line gas line. Spokane Valley Fire Department crews are on the scene. Additional intersections in the area may be shut down until the leak is fixed.

1:30 p.m. update: Valley Fire is now sending its technical rescue team to the scene. Workers will need to enter a trench to make repairs and the trench may need to be reinforced to make sure it doesn't collapse while someone is in it. Residents near the gas leak have been evacuated from their homes.
