New Bern Gas Leak Closes Streets, Forces Evacuations

Several New Bern streets were closed Wednesday after a natural gas leak.

Authorities say about a dozen people were evacuated from Hancock and Johnson Streets, including the Masonic Theater.

We're told a private construction company hit a 1-3/4 inch gas line behind the First Presbyterian Church around 3:00 p.m.

A crew from Piedmont Natural Gas fixed the line and the streets have since reopened.
