Boulder Fire-Rescue stopped a gas leak near East Moorhead Circle and Tantra Drive in Boulder’s Table Mesa neighborhood after a construction company hit an unmarked gas line while working with machinery, according to Boulder Police and Fire spokesperson Dionne Waugh.
Repairs are underway, according to a tweet from Boulder Fire-Rescue’s Twitter account, but gas was shut off for numerous homes in the area around Table Mesa, Tantra and South Loop drives and East and West Moorhead and Walden circles.
“What will take time tonight is for (Xcel Energy) to re-light every home’s pilot light,” Boulder Fire-Rescue stated in a tweet.
Waugh wasn’t certain how many homes had been affected or what person or company hit the gas line. However, she said all those affected should have received a reverse 911 notification.
