Evacuation order lifted following Knox Abbott Drive gas leak

Cayce, SC (Gail Fallaw) - A construction crew hit a natural gas main in Cayce this morning, prompting officials to call for businesses in the 900 block of Knox Abbott Drive to either evacuate or shelter in place. The affected area ran from the intersection of Knox Abbott and 9th Street to the Ocean View Seafood Restaurant at the corner of Knox Abbott and Garden Avenue.

Businesses with even street address numbers were advised to evacuate, and those with odd numbers were told to shelter in place. In this case, that meant that everyone was asked to simply stay put and watch the use of open flames until the area was cleared by the firefighters and police officers.

Chief Byron Snellgrove of the Cayce Department of Public Safety stated that Knox Abbott Drive traffic was blocked from 9th Street to 12th Street for approximately 20 minutes. During that time, an SCE&G crew shut the gas off, stopping the leak. They responded quickly and were in the process of repairing the line Monday afternoon.
