Rancho Cucamonga  Firefighters Respond to Major Gas Leak

Atapproximately 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday, August 08, 2012,Rancho Cucamonga Firefighters responded to a reported gas leak on Archibald Avenue at 5th Street in Rancho Cucamonga. 

Fire crews arrived on scene, to find an excavation crew performing underground utility work had struck a 4” gas line, causing a large natural gas leak.  Firefighters immediately notified the Gas Company who responded to the scene.  Gas Company representatives had to dig further south of the incident to find the main line in order to stop the leak.

Firefighters established a 330’ perimeter around the scene and stood ready with hose lines as a precaution and for the safety of those at the scene.  Since the gas was dissipating straight up into the air, no evacuations of surrounding businesses were necessary.

One engine company, a Battalion Chief and Investigator responded to the early morning incident, along with San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Deputies from the Rancho Cucamonga station and representatives from the Gas Company.  At the time of this release, Archibald remains completely closed to traffic between 4th and 6th Streets.
