Gas Line Rupture at Edgewood Business

A gas line ruptured at an Edgewood business on Friday morning.

It happened at Kendrick Forest Products’ North facility. Morgan Kendrick tells KMCH an outside gas line was nicked when they were removing snow from near a berm. She says they immediately turned off the gas line, notified the utility companies and evacuated the building.

The Markket was also evacuated, along with Garments & Goods. Black Hills Energy says the Edgewood Fire Department was also impacted. Kendrick says they were cleared to re-enter early Friday afternoon.

Along with the utility companies, Edgewood Fire Department and EMS also responded to the incident.
