FOWLER, Calif. (KMPH) -

A ruptured high-flow gas line Friday morning has forced safety officials to shut down a Fowler roadway.

Merced Street in Fowler is closed from Golden State to Fifth Street due to what CAL Fire officials are calling a "significant" leak.

CAL Fire spokesman Ryan Michael said that an inch and a half of line was ruptured. He also said that a number of Pacific Gas and Electric, Co. gas repairmen are tied up with a gas leak on Shaw Avenue in Fresno.

There may be major delays in the area.
