WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A gas leak temporarily closed down the intersection of Kerr Avenue and Cedar Ave. Monday morning.

Fire and gas crews were on the scene at 10:00am and had everything under control shortly after 11:00am.

Officials say construction in the area was the likely cause of the leak.

No one was hurt.
