Marshfield: Gas leak shuts down road for 2 hours

A gas leak shut down a portion of a Marshfield road for about two-hours Thursday.

According to the Marshfield Fire Department, a paving crew was working on a driveway at a home on Careswell Street and struck a residential gas line.

Marshfield Fire, Columbia Gas, and NSTAR worked to control the leak but the Careswell Street homeowner and their dog were evacuated.

After an investigation it was determined that the paving contractor struck an “unmapped” gas line.
