Ruptured Gas Line in Linden Street Area Forces Evacuations
Reports say a gas main was severed in the area of 54 Linden Street.
[Update: 10:14 a.m.] As of about 9:45 a.m., evacuees had returned to their buildings, fire and police vehicles had cleared the scene and one of two National Grid trucks was leaving the area.
Just after 8 a.m. this morning, there were reports of a ruptured gas line in the area of 54 Linden St. Buildings in the area are being evacuated.
Reports say the 3/4 inch gas main was dug up and severed.
This is the second such situation in the area, following the explosion in Springfield over the weekend.
In neighboring Weston Monday, a natural gas line break at 201 Newton St. did not lead to any evacuations in the area and was quickly under control.
