MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A large gas line running from Pampas Drive in Myrtle Beach to Wachesaw Road in Murrells Inlet was ruptured Monday afternoon, fire officials confirmed.

Contractors ruptured the 6-inch line while searching for a line at parking construction project, said Mark Kruea with the City of Myrtle Beach.

Several roads in the area, including Pampas Dr. from Crabtree Lane to Meyers Ave., were closed after the line was ruptured, according to Capt. Bruce Arnel with the Myrtle Beach Fire Department.
