Ayden Broken Natural Gas Line Repaired

A natural gas line break prompted a brief evacuation in downtown Ayden Monday morning.

The leak happened around 9:00 a.m. behind the Ayden Pool Hall on South Lee Street.

Authorities say town workers were repairing a sink hole with a backhoe when a 2-inch line was hit.

A one block area was evacuated, while several nearby buildings had their gas service cut off.

Greenville Utilities got the leaking gas turned off and repaired the line.
