RIVERSIDE, Ohio (WDTN) – A broken gas line forced the evacuation of some Riverside homes and closed a busy street Monday morning.

Vectren crews working near the intersection of Burkhardt Road and Lynnhaven Drive ruptured six inch line around 10:00

Since the Vectren crew was already there, the repairs only took about 15 minutes.

Still, seven homes were evacuated and Burkhardt Road was closed for about and hour. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
