Gas Line Struck, Residents Briefly Evacuated

Amelia Court homes cleared out while firefighters checked air readings.

About eight Amelia Court residents were evacuated by the Madison Fire Department on Friday afternoon after a contractor resurfacing the roads and driveways of the housing development struck a gas line outside their home.

Marilyn Carracino was visiting her parents to have lunch when the incident occurred around noon.

She said it was a bit of a scare, but they were back in their home after about 15 minutes once the air readings checked out fine.

George McLaren, senior distribution supervisor for PSE&G, said the utility company responded to fix the leak.
