RICHMOND, Va. -- A gas leak has closed down several busy streets in downtown Richmond Thursday morning.

Fire crews were called to S 3rd Street and E Cary Street near where the Richmond Health Department and American Red Cross are located around 11 a.m.

This after a contractor was digging to install a new pipe underground and caused the rupture.

As a result, Cary Street is closed to traffic between 2nd and 4th streets. It is also blocked at 3rd and Main up to Cary.

A DPU team from the city is on the way to repair the leak.

CBS 6 reporter Shelby Brown is on the scene. Check back with WTVR.com and watch CBS 6 News at Noon for updates on this developing story.
