Gas Line Rupture Forces Teton Village Evacuation

June 26, 2012 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
Fire-EMS

A large area of Teton Village’s commercial district was evacuated for approximately three hours Tuesday after a contractor doing excavation for new fiber optic lines accidentally hit a propane line near the Jackson Hole Aerial Tramway.  Teton Village Fire and Jackson Hole Fire/EMS, augmented by members of the Community Emergency Response Team and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort Personnel quickly evacuated hotels and businesses in the area.  Among them were the Aerial Tram, Nick Wilson’s Cowboy Café, Walk Festival Hall, The Cody House, The Olympic Sports Plaza, Terra Hotel, The Mangy Moose, Crystal Springs Condominiums, the Bridger Center, The Alpenhoff and the Teton Club.  Lower Valley Energy responded and placed a temporary clamp on the line, shutting off the flow until repairs could be made at a later date.  Employees and guests were permitted to return to the area shortly before 1:30 pm.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
