YULEE, Fla. - A gas leak forced evacuations Thursday morning in the Nassauville Road area of Nassau County.

Officials said construction equipment being used on the road breached a gas line on State Road 200 at O'Neil-Scott Road in the Yulee area.

All structures along SR-200 (A1A) from County Road 107 to City Electric in the Nassauville Road area were evacuated, and SR-200 was closed in both directions from Brady Point Road to Chester Road until 11:30 a.m.

Hazmat specialists were on scene until the gas line was repaired.
