Severed gas line slows traffic

Greensburg — GREENSBURG -- A severed gas line slowed traffic and resulted in the evacuation of a construction crew working on a compressed natural gas station Thursday morning.

Greensburg Fire Chief Scott Chasteen said construction crews were evacuated following the severance of gas line in the 2400 block of North Michigan Avenue. Chasteen said the direction of the wind blew fumes toward the work station leading to the evacuation.

The accident slowed traffic near the Hampton Inn and Cleo Lane. Greensburg Fire crews remained on the scene Thursday morning.

Chasteen said crews with Vectren were digging in the area and planned to crimp off the ruptured line when the Daily News spoke with him Thursday morning. The fire chief was uncertain how long the process would take and he urged motorists to avoid the affected area.

The Daily News will have more on this story as it develops.
