From staff reportsDecember 30, 2013 

— A gas leak closed part of Hillsborough Street between Dixie Trail and Daisy Street on Monday evening, according to PSNC Energy.

PSNC received multiple reports of odor just before 5 p.m. A crew is digging up a service line, which runs to a residence or business, in order to crimp it closed, said Amy Townsend, a spokeswoman for the utility.

The leak was reported near Friendly Drive. The utility hoped to resolve the problem within a few hours, she said.
