Severed natural gas line prompts evacuation

A severed overhead natural gas line prompted evacuation of a building in Fargo’s industrial park Monday.

Firefighters were called about 9 a.m. to Kraft Foods at 1424 43rd St. N.

A forklift hit the gas line, which supplies a furnace in the warehouse, Fargo Fire Capt. Jason Mehlisch said.

Four or five workers inside the building got out, and no one was injured, Mehlisch said.

Crews shut off the gas and ventilated the building, he said.
