ROCHESTER, Minn. – A gas leak Monday morning caused the temporary closure of Highway 14.
The Rochester Fire Department says it was called to the 3800 block of Highway 14 East just a little after 11 am on a report of a two inch gas line being severed by a construction crew. Fire crews shut down traffic and, with the help of Minnesota Energy Resources, clamped off the damaged line and stopped the leak.
Once the leak was stopped, Highway 14 was reopened and Minnesota Energy Resources went to work fixing the line and restoring gas service.
No one was injured in this incident. The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office assisted at the scene.
