Road Closed After Fire System Fails

October 31, 1994|J.E. MITCHELL

Torrey Road south of Piru was closed late Sunday after a fire-fighting system at a Unocal Corp. propane pumping station failed, authorities said.

California Highway Patrol officers sealed off the roadway south of Telegraph Road (California 126) as a precaution after a water deluge system failed about 8:45 p.m., a Fire Department spokesman said.

It was not immediately known how much--if any--gas had escaped from the company's Torrey Hill Pump Station at 3824 Guiberson Road.

Fire Department officials dispatched a hazardous materials team to the scene to determine why the system failed and if gas had escaped from the plant.

No injuries were reported in the incident.
