Carroll school evacuated for gas line repair

January 05, 2002|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Carrolltowne Elementary School in Eldersburg was evacuated yesterday for more than an hour because of a natural gas line leak.

To protect pupils from the cold during the evacuation, officials moved them to the Carrolltown Center mall from about 11 a.m. to 12:40 p.m. while the leaking 2-inch gas line was repaired, officials said.

Sixteen firefighters in four trucks responded to help with the evacuation, but nobody was hurt and the school was not damaged, fire officials said.
