Crews work gas main leak on Broadway


Crews worked a gas main leak on Broadway in Cape Girardeau Sunday that shut down portions of the street.

It happened on morning just before 10 a.m.

The leak was on the corner of Park and Broadway in front of the old Future Fitness building.

The street was shut off from Henderson to West End.

Fire Capt. Fred Vincell says construction workers were working on a scissor-lift and ran over a gas main cap over ground with the lift coming to a rest on the cap. Crews did not want to move the lift for fears of causing a spark.

Ameren crews were called to fix the issue.

No evacuations were performed.
