SALT LAKE CITY — An evacuation order prompted by a gas leak Tuesday afternoon has been lifted for the majority of a dozen homes and businesses near 2100 S. 2150 East, officials say.

One home remained under the evacuation order Tuesday night, and several businesses were closed.

The buildings were evacuated Tuesday afternoon after a 2-3 inch natural gas line was ruptured during a construction project in the area, according to Salt Lake fire Capt. Adam Archuleta.

Dominion Energy responded to the scene just after 5 p.m. and was able to fix the leak by about 7:15 p.m., Archuleta said.

Dominion Energy crews were in the area throughout the evening making more repairs.

There was no explosion or fire as a result of the leak, Archuleta said. One person was treated for a medical issue and released on scene, he added.
