A large natural gas line break caused a Dangerous Situation Alert in Providence Wednesday. 

Around 10:50 a.m., emergency responders responded to Providence Parkway where a large rupture in a 4-inch gas line behind the Regal Providence 14 movie theater. The line was leaking heavy amounts of natural gas, and prompted the Dangerous Situation Alert. People were asked to leave the area, or stay indoors with their air conditioning turned off to keep the fumes from getting into their homes. 

Piedmont Natural Gas worked on repairing the line and got it capped around 1:15 p.m.
