All clear given after Montclair gas main break

April 30, 2012 10:38:58 AM PDT
PSE&G say a contractor damaged a 6 inch plastic gas main on Bloomfield and Park Street in Montclair, New Jersey, causing evacuations and road closures for several hours.

About 100 people were evacuated while repairs were made.

Leak was capped and made safe shortly after noon.

South Park between Bloomfield Ave. and Church St. and the intersection of South Park and Bloomfield closed during the incident reopened shortly before 1:00 p.m.

The gas built up instead of being trapped under ground, so officials say things remained stable.
