A gas line rupture leads to the brief evacuation of about a
one-block area this forenoon. It happened shortly after 11:30 a.m.
at Eidnsess Funeral Home at 1617 Orchard Drive in Brookings.
Workers cut a gas line and authorities quickly moved to get
people out of the immediate area and block off streets.
The gas company was able to quickly shut off the gas and the
all clear was given just before noon.
Brookings Fire and Police responded to the scene.
