Natural gas leak shuts down Buena Vista Pike

Posted: Updated:

A large natural gas leak shut down Buena Vista Pike in North Nashville early Sunday.

When emergency crews arrived at about 7 a.m., a plume of vapor was shooting 20 to 25 feet in the air.

Metro police cordoned off a large area while workers assessed the situation and made repairs.

The leak was stopped at about 8 a.m.  No one was hurt.

Channel 4 News has learned that a Piedmont Natural Gas crew was charging the gas line when a release valve activated.

According to one resident, a new gas line was recently installed in the area.
