Update 3:32 PM
The scene has been reopened. All clear.
This afternoon around 2 PM a person at the Dunkin Donuts on Durham Road, next to Zaxby’s, noticed a strong odor of gasoline. It turns out is was actually coming up through the asphalt. Rut-ro.
The nearby businesses, Waffle House, Zaxby’s, Dunkin’ Donuts, Rose Mart, and the Main Street Grille were evacuated. At this time people are not allowed in till the cause and solution can be determined.
Traffic is still traveling on Old Durham Road at this point. The road is not closed.
No further information is available other than, yep, it smells like gas.
