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.
