Gas leak on Northtown Drive in Jackson

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — There was a gas leak on Northtown Drive in Jackson Tuesday afternoon.

Fire trucks were seen near the Northtown Apartments.

Cleotha Sanders of the Jackson Fire Department said crews arrived just after 2 p.m. Sanders said they had to evacuate about 30 residents at the complex until Atmos Energy was able to finish repairing the damaged gas line.

We’re told the line was accidentally broken by a private company conducting work on the property.
