NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Several buildings in the Gulch were evacuated Friday afternoon due to a gas leak.

The Nashville Fire Department says crews were called to the intersection of 9th Avenue S. and Division Street for reports of a ruptured gas line. Firefighters evacuated nearby businesses and established a perimeter while Piedmont Gas investigated.

The gas company worked for about 3 hours to cap the line, and during that time the public was asked to avoid the area.

The pipeline was repaired and the area reopened for business just after 5 p.m. Friday.
