Re: Legacy Crossing Apartments Gas Leak Evacuation
At 12:24 pm today South Davis Metro Fire Department and Centerville Police were called by Dominion Energy to assist them on a gas leak detected at Legacy Apartments in Centerville. The apartments are located at 1162 W 200 N in Centerville and are situated next to the Megaplex Theaters. The affected apartments are located in Buildings A and B.
Dominion Energy had been called to the apartments to investigate an odor of gas, and they detected dangerous levels of gas in the ground around Building B. Dominion Energy requested an immediate evacuation of both A and B buildings which was accomplished by South Davis Metro Fire and Centerville Police. Legacy Crossing Boulevard was later ordered closed by Dominion Energy. A total of 128 units were evacuated. Most of these units were not occupied at the time by people, but some had animals inside. Dominion Energy also requested that the power be shut down in Building B.
A temporary evacuation center has been set up at Megaplex Theaters in a conference room. The theater and area businesses remain open. Affected residents are asked to check in with the liaison in the conference room. Davis County Animal Control responded to assist residents with animals in their apartments. Dominion Energy designated the following phone number to call for information: 801-324-5111. Residents may also obtain information by following Centerville Police on Facebook at: www.facebook.com/cpd.ut or on twitter by texting “follow @cpdutah” to 40404. Look for #legacygasleak on cpdutah twitter account.
At this time Dominion Energy crews are working to resolve the situation, and we will use twitter and Facebook messaging to inform residents when it is safe to return to their apartments.
