Update Natural Gas Leak 09/16/2019 INC#1032

Update Natural Gas Leak; INC#1032; 4:30PM; 17337 W Tramonto Dr; http://bit.ly/2QemTTU; Pacific Palisades; SoCalGas has fully exposed the 3" pipeline and hopes to have the leak stopped shortly after en route specialty tools arrive (by 5 PM?). No fire. No illness. No injury. Out of an abundance of caution, LAFD was prepared to move an estimated 100+ persons from the nearby large *condominium* building, though the HOA states all persons have already calmly and safely departed the building. Any persons LAFD finds on the premises will now be guided to a recreation room on the far west side of the large complex to await leak stoppage. The nearby upwind school where an unknown number of occupants are being safely sheltered in place alongside firefighters, is known as "Chabad of Pacific Palisades". Sunset Boulevard remains open to all traffic, and is not expected to be affected by the incident; FS 23; Batt 9; West Bureau; Council District 11; Radio Channels: 7; 13; - Brian Humphrey
