Three businesses were evacuated Friday morning when a garbage truck caused a gas leak at a Salt Lake bakery Friday morning near the Target store, a fire spokesman said.
No injuries were reported, said Honolulu Fire Department spokesman Kevin Mokulehua.
A private garbage truck pinched a gas line while placing a garbage bin against a wall. The gas line was situated against the side of the building housing Larry’s Wholesale Bakery, 4369 Lawehana St., Mokulehua said.
Twelve firefighters responded to the 6:53 a.m. alarm, and arrived at 7:01 a.m. They isolated the area, immediately evacuated the bakery and two other businesses downwind.
Mokulehua said the pinched line serves as a feeder line for a propane tank at the business.
Police assisted in the evacuation and performed traffic control.
The gas company arrived at 7:31 a.m. and repaired the damaged line.
