Gas leak closes street, businesses in Verona

Several businesses had to be evacuated in downtown Verona Thursday morning after a backhoe hit a gas main.

The incident happened just after 10:30 a.m. on South Main Street, just south of Verona Avenue.

Main Street was closed between Verona Avenue and Church Street for about 45 minutes until the gas was turned off. Several other businesses remained closed longer while service was restored.

The gas leak has been contained. No injuries were reported.
