Homes evacuated due to gas leak


NEW HANOVER COUNTY (WWAY) — Wilmington firefighters are clearing the scene of a gas leak, but N. 30th Street between Market and Chestnut streets will stay closed for a couple more hours.

Firefighters say a construction company accidentally ruptured a service line while trying to replace it, but the company will not face any fines because the gas line markings were off.
