Gas Leak Forces Evacuation Of Fort Pierre Homes

January 5, 2012, 5:30 PM

FORT PIERRE, SD - Two blocks of a Fort Pierre residential neighborhood were evacuated for two hours Thursday afternoon after a contractor hit a four-inch gas line.

Fort Pierre Fire Chief Rick Cronin saya that the levels of escaped gas were not high, but two churches and nearly a dozen homes one block to the west and one block to the south were evacuated as a precaution.

A contractor had been working where a home was being renovated. The break was reported about 1:30 p.m., and homeowners were allowed to return at about 3:45 p.m.

Cronin says the lack of wind helped prevent the gas from being blown toward nearby schools.
