RENO, NV - Gas is back on along Kietzke Lane after a roadwork crew broke a natural gas main Wednesday morning.
The crew working on the I-580-project near Meadowood Mall hit the line around 9AM. Firefighters quickly responded to deal with safety issues, but soon left when NV Energy took over and determined no one was in any danger.
Gas was shut off to the businesses in the area at McCarran and Kietzke, from Einstein's Bagels to PF Chang's and everything in between. Once the line was repaired, crews had to go from business to business and turn the pilot lights back on, which was done by noon.
