Last updated 10/19/2021 at 7:53pm
NCFPD was dispatched to a broken and blowing natural gas line at 183 Via Floresta in Fallbrook at 3:07 pm. As SDG&E arrived, North County Fire set up a perimeter monitor to detect dangerous gas in the air. According to NCFPD PIO John Choi, there were two homes that needed to be evacuated. Once the gas line was secured the fire department went back into those two homes, checked for any dangerous gases, and repopulated the homes.
By 4:30 pm SDG&E had reportedly repaired the broken line and the area was cleared.
