.@nwnatural has stopped the gas line leak on 3rd Street in Newberg and is working to repair the line. Residents that evacuated can now return home. Our crews will be clearing the scene. But it looks like Lt. Dickenson may have found a fur friend that doesn’t want him to leave. 😻 pic.twitter.com/Jn280LfQ0X— TVF&R (@TVFR) June 28, 2019
