LUMBERTON — A minor gas leak that caused a residential street to be blocked off this afternoon has been repaired, according to Lumberton police Lt. Timmy Wilkins.

The leak began at about 3:30 p.m. at a home on the corner of Caldwell and Ninth streets. No one was evacuated or injured, Wilkins said.

“A guy was doing some digging around the house and just nicked the gas line,” Wilkins said.

About three Lumberton police cars blocked off entrances to Caldwell Street so that equipment from two Lumberton Fire Department trucks would not get run over, Wilkins said.

Wilkins said neighbors don’t need to worry about the leak.

Piedmont Natural Gas workers had the line clamped in about an hour and Wilkins said “probably very little” gas was leaked.
