A gas leak east of Knoxville Thursday closed off a section of T15 for about two hours. Marion County Emergency Management Coordinator Jeff Anderson says a contractor digging alongside the road burrowed into the line at around 5pm. There were no injuries or further damage. T15 was closed from Godrey Ln. to McKimber Dr., and McKimber was used as a detour to the north. The road reopened a little after 7pm. The Knoxville Rural Fire Department, Knoxville Fire and Rescue, Knoxville Police Department, Marion County Sheriff’s Office, Alliant Energy, and the County Engineer’s Office also responded to the scene.
