Abercorn gas leak forces evacuation


A gas leak forced crews to evacuate a building in downtown Savannah.

The leak happened at the corner of East York and Abercorn Street. Most folks probably know it because of the popular restaurant Zunzi's.

WTOC was told by firefighters that a construction crew working in the area accidentally cut a gas line and immediately called for help when they realized what happened.

Drivers passing by wondered why firetrucks and police cars were there. It happened around rush-hour at 5:30. Once crews got there, they had to get everyone out of the building to safety.

Fire crews got the situation under control and folks were let back into the building.
