Escondido business-area reopens after gas leak

Posted: Updated:

ESCONDIDO (CNS) - A gas leak forced a several-hour closure of a business-area thoroughfare in eastern Escondido Monday.

East Valley Parkway was closed to pedestrian and vehicle traffic between Rose Street and Midway Drive about 9:30 a.m. Fire crews and San Diego Gas & Electric personnel were called in to deal with the problem, Sgt. Kevin Toth said.

The utility workers had the leak fixed by about 11:30 a.m., and the roadway reopened a short time later, police reported.
