Main Gas Break
updated: Feb 26, 2013, 3:00 PM

Source: Montecito Fire Protection

The Montecito Fire Protection District responded to a reported broken gas main at the intersection of Butterfly and High Road at 10:47 a.m.

The break occurred when a backhoe accidently hit a gas line while working in the area.

The Southern California Gas Company was called to the scene and were able to secure the leak at 12:50 p.m. Approximately 28 nearby homes in the area can expect to be without gas until the main gas line can be repaired.

Gas Company Field Supervisor Joe Azuna estimated that gas will be restored to the area sometime after 2:30 p.m..

The following intersections remain closed to traffic until the area is safe, and the leak is secured:

Butterfly Lane / Oriole Road

Butterfly Lane / Middle Road

High Road / Middle Road

There were 2 engines, 1 rescue vehicle, and several command vehicles on scene. Agencies on scene include Montecito Fire, Santa Barbara City Fire, The Southern California Gas Company, and Santa Barbara County Public Works.

A broken gas line has been reported near Butterfly Lane and Mesa Road. Engine 2 and Montecito are responding. (02/27/13)

I walk by here every day. I saw that they had done an underground survey in the area. You know, the "legal graffiti" that they spray paint on the street in multi-colors, and don't arrest anyone. After all that, a gas line was ruptured digging. Who is accountable? The operator on the County-owned backhoe (yes it had their sticker),or the people who did the underground survey (don't use the excuse that the line wasn't installed where the drawing said; that's what detectors are for).
Also strange is the Caution Tapes and No Trespassing Signs that have been along the adjacent property owner's "lot line" since about 3 weeks ago. What's that about? The property owner doesn't want the County putting the culvert on "private property"?
