It happened in the intersection of Third Street and Monroe Avenue just before 10:30 a.m.
South Lane County Fire and Rescue officials say a construction crew dug up a large natural gas line.
Neighbors were asked to leave their homes, while Northwest Natural Gas stopped the leak. It didn’t take long to fix.
Fire officials say this is a good reminder for residents and construction personnel to call 8-1-1 before doing any digging. It’s a free service.
No word if the construction company involved in the incident called first.
