The LAFD News & Information blog has the 411 on the natural gas Leak in North Hollywood yesterday which is all very exciting as you might imagine, but I almost spit cocoa pebbles all over my laptop when read the exact location. Check out that street name!:
“On Monday 28, 2005 at 1104 Hours (11:04 AM PST), nine Companies of Los Angeles Firefighters, two LAFD Rescue Ambulances under EMS Captain Gould, three Chief Officer Command Teams under the direction of Assistant Chief Anthony Varela, responded to Leaking Natural Gas at 11150 West Burbank Blvd. at Bonner Avenue in North Hollywood.
The first in company arrived on scene to find an approximately 3’ high-pressure gas main, rapidly spewing natural gas into the atmosphere after a back hoe struck it during construction operations being conducted by DWP. “
The rest of the details are on their site but some people were evacuated and then everything was fixed and all is cool. But back to the street name, of course I knew about it – the city renamed it to “Bonner” when I moved to town because they were so psyched. There was a big ceremony and all kinds of speeches and hoopala but I’m just not the kind of guy to make a big fuss out of something like that.
