Building on Salem Street Being Evacuated

There have been reports of a gaseous odor in the area.

Building on Salem Street Being Evacuated

Wilmington Patch has learned that the Wilmington Fire Department is evacuating at least one building in the vicinity of Salem Street and Evergreen Drive after a gaseous odor was discovered in the area.

Ambulances have been dispatched to the scene along with a bus to shelter residents impacted by the evacuation.

The leak is in the same area that was evacuated for a gas leak in July, 2011. At that time, a contractor ruptured the main while digging a hole for a protective column.

It's currently unclear what caused Tuesday's leak. We will have more information if it becomes available.
