COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Thursday morning, emergency crews, HAZMAT, and Atmos Energy  controlled a major gas leak near Chase Homes in downtown Columbus. 

A gas line break occurred in the area of 20th Street and 2nd Avenue.  Our reporter on the scene said, at one point, the gas was visible from Fred's Tires on the corner of 2nd Avenue and Talbotton Road.

A construction crew working in the area caused the leak when they accidentally hit a gas line around 9:45 a.m. The leak was quickly contained in less than an hour.
