Loras Blvd. Now Open

Loras Blvd., between Bluff and Dell Streets, is now open to motorists and pedestrians. All of the signage was removed at around 2 pm Wednesday afternoon. That portion of Loras was closed Monday night after the house at 429 Loras exploded from a major gas leak. More than 50 people were displaced. Most of them are staying at hotels throughout the city courtesy of the American Red Cross. Fortunately no one was killed in the blast that blew out windows in neighboring properties and caused significant damage to others. One fire fighter was cut on his hand while fighting the blaze. The state fire marshal’s office, local authorities and Black Hills Energy are working to determine why the explosion happened.
