[ARCHIVED] Gas Leak - Lincoln Road and Deer Valley Drive

Gas Leak Lincoln and Deer Run

At approximately 9:15 a.m. on April 8, the Idaho Falls Fire Department was dispatched to Lincoln Road, near the intersection of Deer Valley Drive and N. Edmiston Drive for a gas leak. 

Two pumpers and battalion chief were dispatched. Intermountain Gas is on scene repairing the leak. Some homes were evacuated as a precautionary measure. There is a strong smell of gas throughout the area. The cause of the leak is from an excavator hitting a gas line. 

Crews are reporting that it will be awhile until the leak is repaired. We will update this post and the Idaho Falls Fire Department Facebook page when additional information becomes available.
