Bethany Residents Evacuated after Neighborhood Gas Leak

Posted:
BETHANY BEACH, Del.- A gas leak forced people to evacuate their homes Friday in Sussex County.

The leak happened on South Ocean Drive in Bethany Beach.

Bethany Beach Fire Chief Brian Martin said a contractor working on the street dug down too deep and hit the gas line.

The chief said about half a dozen people were evacuated from surrounding homes.

Fire crews sprayed water on the broken pipe to prevent a gas cloud from forming.

Both Bethany and Millville fire companies and the gas company, Sharp Energy, were called to the scene in Sussex County.
