Gas leak prompts store evacuation | Video, Photo

The Macon-Bibb County Fire Department evacuated the Kroger supermarket in Baconfield for about 20 minutes due to a reported gas leak shortly before 9 a.m.

Store employees and customers were ordered to leave the building as firefighters searched for the source of the leak, which ended up being a propane tank that was accidentally left in the buffer mode. An Atlanta Gas Light crew also was called to the scene.
