Service restored after damage to Mansfield gas line

MANSFIELD, OH (WOIO) - The intersection of North Main Street and Longview Avenue was closed Monday in Mansfield.

The closure was the result of a damaged gas line.

Several nearby businesses were evacuated as a precaution for several hours Monday morning.

Columbia Gas crews have repaired the 8 inch gas line, and gas service has been restored.
