News Release
Vancouver fire Responds to an accidental gas leak. - 06/08/21

Vancouver Fire Department Engine 8 was dispatched to the report of a natural gas leak at 03:36 this AM at 305 SE Chaklov in Vancouver, WA. This is Cascade Park Plaza.  Initial crews arrived to find a strong smell of natural gas in the area.  A contractor had breached a 2" high pressure natural gas line.  Vancouver Fire isolated the scene and denied entry to a large area south of Mill Plain around the 117th Ave as there were very high levels of natural gas in nearby buildings and surrounding streets.  Vancouver Police helped to block roads.  Vancouver Fire Department's regional HazMat team was activated as well as resources from Northwest Natural Gas.  Vancouver Fire had 12 responders on scene.  Northwest Natural was able to stop the leak  at 05:16 and surrounding businesses were allowed to occupy structures as the levels of natural gas returned to zero.
