Gas Line Broken In Jacksonville, Now Secured | News
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A gas line was broken by JEA at 4122 Marquette Avenue in Jacksonville earlier today, according to JEA spokeswoman Gerri Boyce.
It happened a little before 11 a.m. and was made safe by 11:30. Sylvia Vega with TECO (People's Gas) said four customers had their service interrupted as a result of the line being broken. She said the company expected those customers to have their service restored by 3 p.m. Thursday.
"A JEA sewer crew was milling the road and hit a gas main. The line was shallow," Boyce said. The road was already closed for the construction and did not have to be blocked off to do any repairs.
Vega said no homes had to be evacuated because of the line breakage.
Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department spokesman Tom Francis says there is no danger to the public.
