Gas leak capped on Sheppard Street

Utility workers have capped a gas leak off upper Meeting Street, according to Charleston Fire Department officials.

Fire Battalion Chief Mike Julazadeh said SCE&G and emergency crews responded to Sheppard Street, just off Meeting Street north of Line Street, and closed the road between Hanover and Aiken streets around 10:30 a.m.

A little under an hour later, utility crews were able to cap the leak, according to Julazadeh.

SCE&G has not said what caused the leak.
