BEND, OR -- A gas leak in northwest Bend shut down several streets for three hours, Wednesday. Just before 10 a.m., Bend Fire responded to the alley between Elgin and Fresno, near Northwest 14th and found a 2" high-pressure natural gas line broken by construction equipment.
Crews closed two blocks, checked houses for gas build-up and told residents to shelter in place with the windows closed.
Power was cut to the area as a precaution. Streets reopened after Cascade Natural Gas performed repairs.
