At 11 a.m. Tuesday a natural gas line ruptured at the Ruston Fire Department Headquarters on Georgia Avenue.

Eric Brazzel, public education officer for RFD, said traffic was redirected and Georgia Avenue was shut down at Willow Glen Boulevard and Louisiana Highway 33 because of the gas leak.

Brazzel said the fire department evacuated Price Tire, which is across the street from the RFD headquarters.
