SALT LAKE CITY — A natural gas leak forced part of 2100 S in Sugar House to be closed to traffic Tuesday afternoon.

The Salt Lake City Fire Department reports the leak occurred at a residence at 2150 E 2100 S.

A representative for Dominion Energy told FOX 13 the leak occurred because a contractor working in the area ruptured a natural gas line.

Fire officials evacuated nearby businesses and closed both directions of 2100 S between 2100 E and 2200 E. As of 7:15 p.m., the road reopened and all evacuation orders were lifted.
