Reports of the smell of natural gas in Depoe Bay in the vicinity of SW Walkingwood and SW Singing Tree, just south of Depoe Bay.
Reports from the scene indicate that a 1.5 inch natural gas line has been punctured. The gas company is enroute. All construction equipment in the area is shut down.
Sounds like the leak itself is at a home on Meadow Lane.
The gas line ruptured is bigger than a half-inch. Lots of gas escaping. Depoe Bay Firefighters have ordered a number of nearby homes to be evacuated, especially those on Walkingwood and Meadow.
Leak stopped. Northwest Natural Gas is completing repairs. Everyone evacuated is back in their homes and Depoe Bay Fire-Rescue is returning to quarters. The gas company says it’ll take another hour or so to finish repairs to the gas line.
