VIDEO: Crews secure gas leak that closed part of Clements Ferry Road

CHARLESTON COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Dominion Energy said it secured a gas leak reported early Friday morning along Clements Ferry Road.

Cainhoy Fire & Rescue said the leak forced the closure of a portion of Clements Ferry Road between Reflectance Drive and Highway 41 for several hours.

Dominion spokesman Paul Fischer said the leak was secured at approximately 6 a.m. As of just after noon Friday, Fischer said crews were completing work on the damaged lines and were expected to be completed soon.

A third-party contractor doing work in the area accidentally struck and damaged one of Dominion’s natural gas lines, Fischer said.

No customers were affected by the leak, Fischer said.

Firefighters said earlier Friday morning that traffic in the area was being detoured through Reflectance and 41 until further notice.
