A downtown construction site that has been plagued with problems reported another one Wednesday afternoon: the site's third gas line break in less than two months.
A gas line broke behind the former Arensberg shoe store, in the 800 block of Massachusetts, about 2:40 Wednesday afternoon. Crews evacuated buildings from the store to Ninth Street for about 10 minutes, according to Lawrence Douglas County Fire & Medical Captain Brandon Holloman
Black Hills Energy sent two workers to repair the break. No injuries were reported.
The latest incident comes just five days after an electrical fire in the building's basement. Two previous gas line breaks were reported in July and earlier in August.
