Fire officials are packing up and leaving after SCE&G crews contained a gas leak near the intersection of Gervais Street and Millwood Avenue.

According to fire department spokesperson Brick Lewis, the rupture of a 2-inch gas line forced the closure of Dillon Street and parts of Gervais near Millwood and Lyon Street.

Several businesses in the area were evacuated out of an abundance of caution.
