Condos evacuated during gas line break

4S RANCH — Firefighters from the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District
responded at 9:53 a.m. Feb. 5 to the report of a ruptured gas line on Camino San Bernardo just south of Camino del Norte. Upon arrival, firefighters discovered that a tractor doing road work in the area had severed a 4-inch natural gas line.
The Sheriff’s Department and California Highway Patrol assisted with the evacuation of 10 condominiums adjacent to the leak, and traffic control on surface streets while SDG&E worked to secure the leak. Crews remained on scene for approximately three-and-a-half hours until the leak was secured. Evacuated residents were then allowed to return to their homes.
Two fire engines and a battalion chief from Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District responded to the scene along with SDG&E, CHP and Sheriff’s deputies. No injuries were reported. Battalion Chief Mike Gibbs served as the incident commander.
