SIERRA VISTA - An additional 200 customers near the Monument Fire have had their natural gas service shut off because of the fire.
The area is bordered by Ramsey Road on the north, East Calle de la Palmera on the south, South Mesquite Tree Lane on the west, and Calle Lima on the east.
Gas has also been shut off to an undeveloped and unoccupied subdivision immediately to the west of that area, bordered by Ramsey Road on the north, east Calle de la Palmera on the south, Highway 92 on the west, and South Wild Rose Road on the east.
On Thursday, 57 customers had their gas shut off.
Service has been restored to 2,100 customers who were temporarily shut off on Friday because of the Antelope Fire on Ft. Huachuca.
This action is part of a plan Southwest Gas developed to isolate natural gas facilities in stages, in order to protect public safety as the fire progresses.
