[ARCHIVED] Residents Being Evacuated for Gas Leak - 100 block of 6th, 7th and 8th Street

The Idaho Falls Fire Department has requested the evacuation of residents and businesses, including the Aquatic Center, located within the 100 block of 6th, 7th and 8th Streets in Idaho Falls due to a gas leak.  The leak is from a main line, and crews are onsite and working to shut of all three sections. There are no current fires or other hazards, but we are requesting that people evacuate and avoid the area until further notice. The cause is still under investigation. We do not have a time-frame for the evacuation at this time.  A Code Red call has gone out to those in the area. We will update this post, our social media pages as well as local media outlets as more information becomes available.
