RALEIGH (WTVD) -- Firefighters evacuated an area along Peace Street between N. Blount Street and N. Person Street north of downtown Raleigh Thursday because of a natural gas leak.
Pictures from Chopper 11 showed workers using excavation equipment to get at the broken pipe.
A drilling rig used to put wire and pipes under pavement was parked nearby, so it appears utility workers hit the gas line.
The leak was capped around 3 p.m. and people were allowed to return.
