Four Franklin homes were evacuated and electricity was shut off on North Main Street after a gas line was cut Tuesday.
Firefighters were called to the 700 block of North Main Street about 9:30 a.m. after an underground gas line was punctured, Franklin Fire Department spokesman Brad Epperson said. Power was cut to the block, and people were asked to leave their homes as a precaution, he said.
Gas was shut off within about an hour of the leak, and workers from Vectren continued to work on repairs after firefighters left at about 10:45 a.m., Epperson said. But power was still off on the block, he said.
