Gas line ruptured; second this month

Fulton firemen blocked off an area along Sixth Street between Market and Bluff streets at 2:45 p.m. Monday after a city natural gas line was ruptured by a crew installing an underground telephone cable.

A strong odor of natural gas filled the area. Representatives of the Fulton Utilities Department arrived promptly and found a nearby valve to shut off the gas leak.
