Ventura Neighborhood Back To Normal After Gas Leak Forced Evacuations

Posted on Monday, April 22, 2013 12:28am

Things are back to normal in a Ventura neighborhood this morning, but it was anything but that yesterday, when a ruptured gas line forced some evacuations.

A resident digging on the 300 block of West Simpson Street just after one p.m. yesterday accidently damaged the line. Ventura firefighters blocked off the area, and evacuated several nearby homes as a precaution.

The gas company sent emergency crews to the scene, and the line was repaired. No one was hurt.
