COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Firefighters are responding to a second-alarm gas fire in the 2800 block of West Broad Street in West Columbus.

Officials on scene say Columbus-based Team Fishel was doing underground boreing in the parking lot area by the Domino’s Pizza and struck a gas line.

The ovens in the Domino’s ignited the gas. Everyone evacuated the Domino’s building when they smelled the gas.

A pregnant woman who was running away from the scene and tripped is the only person who was injured.

Fire crews are evacuating buildings that are one block away. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
