During construction at approximately 11:45 am on Thursday, June 20 in the Shelburne Shopping Park a main gas line was broken. Vermont Gas responded immediately as well as fire departments from at least three towns. Traffic in and out of the business plaza was temporarily shut down for about 30 minutes.
Shelburne Fire Lieutenant Pierre Grangien commented, “The gas leak is under control but the fire department was conducting gas readings in each building. After the buildings are deemed safe it will back to business as usual,” he said adding “No injuries were reported.”
