Highway 601 reopens after propane leak at plant

ORANGEBURG, SC (WIS) - Highway 601 in Orangeburg was shut down temporarily after crews were called to stop a leak at a local plant.

According to Orangeburg County Administrator Harold Young, a propane leak at the Koyo plant forced officials to temporarily close the road.

The leak also forced employees within the plant to evacuate the facility as a precaution.

Young said contractors are on the scene with a HazMat team working to correct the issue.
