Workers mend broken gas line in Escatawpa

ESCATAWPA, MS (WLOX) - A ruptured natural gas line in Escatawpa is almost fixed, and poses no threat to the community. That's according to the Moss Point Public Works Department, which has a crew on Dutch Bayou Road making repairs.

The workers were still busy at noon on Tuesday.

A grass cutting tractor hit the natural gas line around 9am, sending gas spewing into the air.
