Gas leak near Central Park in Idaho Falls

The following is a statement from the Idaho Falls Fire Department’s Facebook page on Thursday.
GAS LEAK — Please avoid the area! The 600 block of Garfield and Cleveland, behind Central Park, has been closed due to a gas leak in the alley. Please avoid the area until the leak has been repaired.
Be advised that Idaho Falls Power has shut off power in a three block area – Freeman to Fanning and Garfield to Gladstone – so people in that area need to seek other warm places to stay until the leak is repaired and the power is turned back on.
The few individuals who were home at the time have been evacuated as a safety precaution. There are no injuries. The cause of the leak is not known at this time. It will be at least a couple of hours before it is repaired. We will update this post when we have additional information. The call came in at approximately 12:30 p.m.
