HOLLYWOOD – A third-party contractor for the DWP caused a natural gas line to be ruptured Saturday morning in Hollywood, prompting the evacuation of several buildings, officials said.
Firefighters responded about 11:28 a.m. after gas began leaking in the 1700 block of North Cahuenga Boulevard (map), according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
No fire or injuries were immediately reported.
Nearby residences and businesses were being evacuated in an area bounded by Franklin Avenue to the north, Ivar Avenue to the east, Wilcox Avenue to the west and Hollywood Boulevard to the south, the Fire Department said.
Streets were closed to traffic in the vicinity while repairs were underway, according to Capt. Dave Storaker of the Los Angeles Police Department.
LAFD initially tweeted that the gas line was expected to be fixed by 5 p.m.
The estimation changed multiple times, with the latest update from the gas company predicting it would not be fixed until midnight.
A third-party contractor for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power broke the line, Ann Silva with the Southern California Gas Company said.
“We have a 6-inch natural gas line that DWP was excavating. … they accidentally hit the line,” LAPD Capt. Daniel Curry said.
The break was not a rupture, according to Silva, but it had been described as such by the Fire Department.
The cause of the rupture was unknown. -KTLA
