REDMOND, OR -- A contractor digging a post hole hit a natural gas service line Thursday morning, prompting an evacuation and a brief road closure in Redmond.


Battalion FIre Chief Jon Wood says, Redmond FIre and Rescue was called to Premier Auto Body and Paint on NE Fifth Street at 10:25 a.m. Cascade Natural Gas crews came and put a clamp on the line. Wood says it took about 15 minutes to fix it. Jackpine Court was closed during the repairs.

 

A damaged gate was being replaced for Premier Auto Body and Paint. Wood says he's not sure the contractor had called 8-1-1 to locate any lines in the area before dig.
