— A contractor working in north Raleigh cut a gas line Monday afternoon, PSNC spokeswoman Angie Townsend said. The line was cut outside 8208 Mourning Dove Road, and four homes were without gas service.

Raleigh police were limiting vehicle traffic in the area of Mourning Dove Road and Apple Orchard Way while crews attempted to cap the leak.

Students at nearby West Millbrook Middle School were dismissed at the normal time. Those who usually walk home, however, were kept on campus, said Greg Thomas, a spokesman for the Wake County Public School System.
