The Park City Police and Fire personnel have lifted the evacuation in buildings near Prospector Avenue and Gold Dust Lane, and normal traffic is being allowed. Roads were blocked earlier when a gas line rupture was reported on the south side of the road, caused by a landscaping project.
Captain Phil Kirk of the Park City Police Department said Questar has shut off the gas on the line, but repairs could take an indefinite amount of time.
Personnel from Questar have reportedly arrived on the scene in the Prospector area, where a rupture in a three-inch gas line was reported at about 12:40 PM on the south side of Prospector Avenue. Police Captain Phil Kirk reports that a landscaping project cause the leak.
Police have blocked traffic in the area. Kirk said that they have evacuated nearby buildings, including the New Claim Condos, Lifestyle Electronics and the Poison Creek Office Building. There were no injuries.
