Truck ruptures natural gas line in Hinesburg

Posted: Updated:

Firefighters say a cement truck ruptured a Vermont natural gas line in Hinesburg Thursday evening. Vermont Gas says the truck hit a valve. They say the damaged valve didn't pose a serious risk, but crews closed down Shelburne Falls Road to O'Neil Road until Vermont Gas could turn off the flow of gas.

Jiffy Mart-- across the street from the construction zone-- was evacuated as a precaution.

No one was hurt.

Vermont Gas expected to complete repairs by about 7 p.m.
