Mower strikes gas line in Wake Forest neighborhood

Posted June 19, 2013

— Several homes in a Wake Forest neighborhood were evacuated Wednesday afternoon because of a gas leak, authorities said.

A spokeswoman with PSNC said someone with a lawnmower hit a small natural gas line at a residence in the 400 block of Seventh Street shortly before 4 p.m.

The system was taken offline for a few hours for repair, and two to three homes were evacuated as a precaution.

    Sounds more like they hit a gas meter with a riding mower, causing the leak.

    Obama will probably want to get rid of lawn mowers now since they were involved in an incident - similar to guns......
