Cleveland firefighters were called to the intersection of W. 150th Street and Puritas Avenue Thursday night after Dominion Energy said a natural gas line ruptured.

The streets were closed in both directions, but the intersection has since been reopened, according to the fire department. However, W. 150th remains closed between Puritas and Coe Avenue.

Dominion Energy is making repairs to the ruptured gas line.

The fire department said an eight-inch gas line ruptured.

Dominion Energy said the gas was shut off at 8:54 p.m.

When firefighters originally arrived on scene, residents in the area were evacuated. The scene was checked for safety, and those who were evacuated are returning to their homes.
