WILMINGTON, Del. - January 8, 2013 (WPVI) -- Businesses were evacuated and traffic was detoured after construction crews struck a gas line in Wilmington, Delaware Tuesday afternoon.
The fire department, police and Delmarva crews were called out around 12:00 p.m. to the 900 block of North Shipley Street.
