Gas Line Breach South of Manchester

Firefighters responded to a gas line breach south of Manchester on Wednesday afternoon.

The Manchester Fire Department says they were called out around 1:30 pm to the AJ Spiegel development at 2274 Highway 13 after a boring machine cut a Black Hills’ gas line.

Fire Chief Mike Ryan says the safety equipment that had been installed worked as planned, isolating the gas release to a minimal amount.

The fire department spent about a half hour at the scene, with Black Hills Energy staff and the Manchester Police Department also responding.
