SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — A gas leak on Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard has caused several streets to shut down, the Savannah Fire Department (SFD) says.

Firefighters say the gas line was accidentally damaged by a construction crew and gas company crews worked to mitigate the leak. SFD says workers damaged a 6-inch main that required crews to cap the leak.

SFD says the Northbound lanes of MLK Boulevard and Montgomery Street from W. Anderson Street to 33rd Street.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information is reported.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story incorrectly identified one of the closed streets at 30th Street, but SFD has since corrected the error.
