Gas leak prompts evacuations in Grandview

A report of a hissing sound coming from Cascade Natural Gas property next to J.M. Smucker at 100 Forsell Road in Grandview prompted an evacuation and stopped traffic on several surrounding streets just before midnight last night (Monday).

According to Grandview Fire Chief Pat Mason, a safety valve at a pressure regulator station opened, and Cascade Natural Gas immediately sent a crew to fix the problem.

The fire department evacuated the J.M. Smucker and Fruit Smart plants. Grandview police and Yakima County Sheriff deputies also closed Euclid Road, Wallace Way and Forsell Road.
