I-90 near Sunset Hill back open after gas leak

SPOKANE, Wash. --- The Washington State Patrol has reopened Interstate 90 near Sunset Hill after a gas leak shut down parts of the freeway Wednesday night.

Troopers said what appeared to be an ammonia cloud was on the south side of I-90 near Geiger. They shut down the freeway westbound from Highway 195 to Geiger and eastbound from Geiger to Highway 2.

Authorities said the leak was from a nearby business, Johanna Beverage. They said the leak could possibly have been anhydrous ammonia.

Around 10:00 p.m. Wednesday, crews reopened the freeway and contained the scene.

The investigation is ongoing.
