The Cedartown City Fire & Police Departments along with the Atlanta Gas Light Company were dispatched to Park Street shortly after 4PM this afternoon. This was in response to call to Polk County 911 placed by a resident regarding a gas line rupture.

According to officials the COMTRAC Company was drilling in order to install new fiber optics in the area when crews hit the gas line and caused it to rupture.

As a precaution police closed Park Street between Hebert Street and East Avenue, as well as blocked access from Noyes Street.

Officials stated that no one had to be evacuated from the area, and the roads have since reopened.

There were no injuries reported in the incident.
