Natural gas leak temporarily closes street

Jonesboro, AR (KAIT)- Part of Huntington Street near downtown Jonesboro was shut down for a time Saturday night after a natural gas line broke.

A resident was digging with a backhoe on his property at 1106 W. Huntington Avenue when he hit a gas line and it ruptured.  Jonesboro Police went door to door asking residents to voluntarily evacuate.  It took crews several hours to repair the line.  No injuries were reported.
