Gas leak in south Moorhead forces road closures

MOORHEAD, Minn. (Valley News Live) A gas leak late Thursday night is blocking parts of a well-traveled road Friday morning.

Firefighters say a gas line was hit during snow clearing work near the Eventide campus. Repairs meant blocking off 8th Street South between 12th and 18th Avenues.

Some roads in Moorhead are still closed. 8th St. S. between 12th Ave. S. and 24th Ave. S. is shut down.

Firefighters say no one was hurt and no one is in danger because of the gas leak.

Area residents may notice natural gas smells outdoors in the area while repairs are underway. This is to be expected. Residents with concerns should still call 911 for help.
