(WEST SALEM, Ore.) - Salem Fire Department crews were dispatched to a report of a natural gas odor in the area of Glen Creek Road and Cornucopia Street NW that was called in by a passing motorist.

Chris Riffle with Salem Fire says the call came in Wednesday just after 2:00 PM. The first firefighters on the scene reported that workers at a nearby construction site had hit a 2" natural gas line.

Riffle says Salem firefighters used a gas detection monitor to detect the gas levels in the vicinity, including inside the library and post office. Fortunately, the problem did not result in evacuations.
