Update for Escondido Village residents on gas leak

Fire Department continues to repair a gas leak near Campus Drive East and Escondido Road. Residents of Escondido Village are asked out of an abundance of caution to refrain from using grills, power tools or any open flame due to ongoing repairs. In addition, residents of Studio 2, Quillen Highrise, and Blackwelder Highrise are asked to either remain indoors or, if leaving the area, to do so via Escondido Road.

Gas service has been temporarily shut off at Quillen Highrise and Studio 2. Once the gas leak is repaired, service will be restored and help will be made available to restart pilot lights as needed.
