GAINES TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A portion of South Division Avenue in Kent County has reopened hours after a gas leak forced crews to close off the corridor.

They were called to S. Division Avenue north of 76th Street just before 4 p.m. Monday for a gas leak.

Capt. Gunderson with the Cutlerville Fire Department said workers were installing fiber optics underground when they hit a gas line. No one was injured.

Authorities closed S. Division Avenue between Lilly and Dunkirk streets, near RV World, for about six hours as DTE employees worked to stop the leak and repair the main.

The roadway reopened around 10 p.m. Monday.
