Gas line break brings fire crew out and shuts down intersection of Orange Grove and Shannon.

Northwest Fire officials received a call this morning of a possible gas leak at the site of a widening project at Orange Grove.  According to NWFD the call came in sometime after 9:24 a.m., after a construction crew hit a gas line. 

Fire crews thought a 4 inch line had been broken, according to NWFD officials, when crews arrived they found a 1 inch line instead.

Crews from Southwest Gas arrived shortly after fire crews and were able to secure the 1 inch pipe, this was 33 minutes after the initial 911 call was made, according to Northwest Fire officials.

There were no injuries or evacuations reported during the leak.

Orange Grove Rd. between Shannon and Mona Lisa was closed from 9:24 a.m. to 10:20 a.m., according to NWFD.
