Fargo strip mall evacuated after gas leak
Fire Battalion Chief Chris Rasmussen said employees at University Square, 2615 S. University Drive, reported the smell of natural gas around 9:14 a.m.
Fire crews and Excel Energy turned off the building’s natural gas service and evacuated employees as a precautionary measure, Rasmussen said.
The building was ventilated and gas readings returned to normal. The leak was caused by a broken gas line inside the building.
No injuries were reported.
