Lakeside Assists Santee FD with Natural Gas Leak

At 0958, Lakeside Engine 1 responded on a first-alarm assignment with E4, E9, M4, T4, R5, and B2 to a natural gas line break at 260 E. Bradley Ave. Maintenance crews working in the area had accidentally contacted the gas line resulting in the leak. Three people were evacuated to a nearby clubhouse and the rest of the residents in the area were advised to stay inside and keep their windows and doors closed. This is a technique that responders use called sheltering-in-place. SDG&E arrived on scene quickly and controlled the leak. Responding units ensured that no fire broke-out and there were no injuries reported.
