Bladenboro schools evacuated

The students at Bladenboro Primary and Bladenboro Middle Schools had to be evacuated after a road crew ruptured a natural gas line near the schools. Students were escorted to the national guard armory and to local churches where they were fed lunch before being dismissed by school officials about 1:15 pm. Bladenboro's police chief says the ruptured line has been fixed and that classes should start as usual Wednesday morning.
